The Super Bolide of September 13, 2007 0920:02
UT ( 3:20:02 am MDT )
This particular fireball was the biggest New Mexico meteor
event of 2007. It was captured by Sandia National Laboratories Sentinal
camera 1 in
Albuquerque and by my Sentinal camera located near Lamy, New Mexico. I combined
the captures into one simultaneous movie.
Sandia 1 site is about 70 miles southwest of my location near Lamy so the
video views show different perspectives.
Color movie on right is the view from Albuquerque. Black/white video
on left is the sky from near Lamy.

The movie also contains sound recorded by Thomas Ashcraft's forward
scatter radio observatory.
Interestingly, by radio this super bolide did not produce a strong forward
scatter reflection as you can see on the 83.250 MHz chart below.
More radio analysis coming.
Here is Ashcraft's movie by itself. In the movie North is at the top
and West is to the right of screen.
Sound is the forward scatter reflection at the frequency of 83.250 MHz
