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.
