So this popped up on my facebook and had a little read. Just for the record the title is from the blog and I did try searching for any thread similar
so sorry if it has I may of missed it
A NASA camera I believe caught a glowing object travelling over the southeastern US States. NASA have said that they have ruled out that it was a
meteor of any sort but more than likely to be a part of space debris. I'll copy and paste the short text in the blog, sorry I'm on my phone and can't
figure out how to do it properly
There was a bright event seen across several Southeast states last night at 12:29:30 AM CDT (1:29:30 EDT). Based on the data we currently have, this
object was not a meteor or fireball. Tracked by 5 NASA cameras in the SE, it is moving at roughly 14,500 miles per hour, which is too slow to be a
meteor. As you can see in the video, it has also broken into multiple pieces, which, combined with the slow speed, indicates a possible reentry of
space debris. There are over 120 eyewitness accounts on the American Meteor Society website (www.amsmeteors.org)
My daughter in SC shared this story with me this morning. I was amazed that it wasn't anywhere on the forum too. Thanks for sharing. I thought it was
interesting that further in the article they provided contact numbers if debris is located with warnings to not disturb or touch any debris found. Is
Thank you Zaphod. I had no idea. I know you are quite knowledgeable about these areas. I am curious as to what is the circle object above upper right
of the meteor explosion on the frozen frame of the OP's video? Is this a reflection of a component on a window, an inputted video data compass, or
some kind of camera distortion.
Edit add: I am curious since I have seen it in the other images and tokyo video frames shared regarding this. I wish I could circle it or point an
arrow at it, but alas, this old iPad 1 doesn't work too well in that area.
