Observer's comments:  This night, there was a lot of lightning over southern New Mexico and it over-triggered
the Sentinel image system. But my secondary system still captured a fireball at 0658 UT ( 12:58 am MDT ).
In the movie below the small meteor can be seen streaking upward towards the bright dot at screen bottom.  
It might be hard to see.  The bright dot is Jupiter and the superbright sphere to the left is the Moon.

Fireball   :   June 23, 2008    0658 UT

Movie :  Ashcraft's video/radio forward scatter system capture, with two radios and dual channel sound:
Moderate sonic radio reflection.  Also, there is a flash of lightning near the end of this movie in the southern sky.
