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:

Based on data from the video, the visual magnitude of the fireball was -14.6, about four times brighter than a full Moon!

"The fireball was a pure emerald green, uncomfortably bright to look at," adds Harald Edens located in the Magdalena Mountains west of Socorro, NM. "The object was disintegrating when I saw it, with pieces parallel-tracking and trailing the fireball. Those smaller pieces had all different colors--most notably red. I think it has been a piece of space junk."

Wow, Im going to have to call my Dad, to see if he saw it or heard anything about it. That is a very interesting find. I couldnt imagine watching something like that in real life.

If it was green, it was a meteroide. I saw the same. During the last sequence of disentagration it becomes green.

Sweet true color image!!

The Sentinel III System compiled an excellent video available from a link on this thread in the breaking news forum: www.abovetopsecret.com...

Sounds like what they call a "Super Bolide" though...
