Video of California Daytime Fireball Surfaces: link
Video footage has finally surfaced of the daytime fireball that illuminated the sky over the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California back in April.
NASA and the SETI Institute had asked the public to submit any amateur photos or video footage of the event, and previously a just few photos were
taken of the event, even though it happened in broad daylight and created sonic booms that were heard over a wide area, back on Sunday, April 22, 2012
at 7:51 a.m. PDT. A few weeks later, Shon Bollock, who was making a time-lapse kayaking video just outside Kernville, California realized he had
captured the bolide streaking through the air. This video shows the event several times, successively zooming in for a closer look. According to NASA
it is the only footage of the meteor thus far.
Strange that they say Shon was making a " time-lapse kayaking video", when the footage looks like normal frame rate video (between 25-30 fps), and
there is not even any water let alone a kayak in sight. Not saying that anyone is being deceitful, but it does seem a little odd.
On a related note, samples of the Sutter's Mill meteorite have been changing hands for
ound a thousand USD per gram
I'm sure there are many more pieces out there waiting to be found - I'd certainly be out there looking if I was anywhere near there

can't be removed, it seems?
