Observer's comments:  There were two nice fireballs during this minute, seventeen seconds apart.
The fireballs appeared close to one another but may or may not originate from the same source.
Kind of a rare and lucky occurrence actually.
 ( NOTE:  In the still image above one fireball streak is seen to the left of the moon.)

Fireball movie 1, capture box, no sound. The Sentinel system captured the first fireball but missed the second while it processed the first.
