Specimen Fireball 1:   October 24, 2008    1202 UT

Observer's Comment:  There were numerous fireballs this night. I will be posting more specimens
from this night as time permits.

Sonic Movie :  Ashcraft's dual forward scatter system;   video and stereo sound:
Interesting "popping" phenomena from the head echo. The sound flares as the fireball flares.
