January 19, 2005 Fireball

2005.01.19 FireballThis bright meteor was observed from the Denver area at 6:38 PM MST. Witnesses reported seeing it to the northeast. It was recorded by the Cloudbait camera just above the horizon (video, 71 KB). This camera was probably at least 150 miles from the meteor path. It was also recorded by the Elizabeth High School camera (video, 92 KB). These two cameras show the meteor at the same azimuth, so triangulation is impossible. An estimate based on altitude alone places this event in the northeast corner of Colorado, or the southwest corner of Nebraska.

I am waiting for results from other allsky cameras in the area.

If you saw this fireball and have not made a report, please do so here.

Please check back for further information as it becomes available.
