I tried to search and did not find reference to this.The ship is the small light that appears in front of the greater light above.



It seems that was a beautiful show.

Happy 2011 ATSers.

It's supposed to be the disintegration of the craft. If it is genuine, I can hardly say it's beautiful unless there was no one on it.

It was beautiful because it came back as planned.
The Japanese did a pretty good job sending this to an asteroid, picking up a sample.
The craft returned, dropped the sample. the sample survived reentry, the craft did not.
that was all by design.
The sample however was very small. I think they might be a little disappointed about that.

oh...well perfect then. I wonder why they couldn't land it. I just read no one was on it and was a seven year probe mission, but it seems a waste. I guess they couldn't prevent it.

It's real and no, there was no one on it.

en.wikipedia.org...

The reentry capsule and the spacecraft reentered to the Earth atmosphere on 13 June 2010 at 13:51 UTC.[71] The heat-shielded capsule made a parachute landing in the South Australian outback while the spacecraft broke up and incinerated in a large fireball.
