Cloudy most of the night. The Sentinel system made one capture which may be a satellite
or may be a possible meteor above the clouds. Difficult to tell.

This particular fireball was far to my north over Colorado. Not a Sentinel capture.

Movie 1 : Ashcraft's video/radio system with dual channel forward scatter sound.
