New Mexico Fireball!


www.spaceweather.com

On Sept 13th at approximately 3 o'clock in the morning MDT, an extremely bright fireball streaked over New Mexico, "It was terrifying," says eyewitness Susan K. Burgess. "I was stargazing outside my house near Santa Fe when the landscape started becoming very bright, as if a brilliant full moon was quickly rising from the southwest. The fireball itself [slowly moved] over the house and disintegrated with a great deal of scatter in the northwest sky."

At the Sandia National Labs in Albuquerque, a Sentinel all-sky video camera captured the fireball in flight:

The video on the spaceweather site:

www.spaceweather.com...

you need Quicktime to play that, so I wasn't able to watch it

Also linked is this page:

www.heliotown.com...

Which contains this video:

That's an mp4 video, I was able to play that, it was pretty odd.

A Super Bolide, indeed!

The video makes for a wicked view! Way Cool!!

I wish I too could have seen it in the colors described by the eyewitness.

"Pure emerald green," and "those smaller pieces had all different colors--most notably red."

That description kind of reminds me of the fireball and lights mentioned in the event off the New Jersey coast on Labor Day weekend.

Good thing they don't have to worry about any "medical waste" washing up on the shores in New Mexico!


Thanks for the great find, wrangell76!

Any explanation yet? Pretty crazy event! I'm sure it is just the angle of the camera but it did look like it went back up. It's late though and I'm pretty tired. I wish I could see amazing stuff like this in Arizona, I should get out more.

The event was recorded using a "Sentinel all-sky video camera," which incorporates a "fisheye lens with a 180 degree field."

I believe the lens would produce the illusion in the video that the object went back up when in fact it simply disappeared from view over the horizon.

Too bad the camera apparently can't capture the true colors of the object as well, that would have been awesome to behold!

You don't even need to understand what they're saying to appreciate the sight of that comet, I mean, the tail stretched all across the sky!
