Chickamauga, GA Fireball Meteor 2:27 AM CDT (2013 August 28 07:2721 UTC)

Last night at approximately 2:27 AM CDT (2013 August 28 07:2721 UTC), all 6 NASA allsky cameras in the SouthEast picked up a very bright fireball (peak magnitude ~ -11, 2 magnitudes brighter than the Last Quarter Moon) that MAY have produced meteorites. The cameras were completely saturated, necessitating a manual solution. This may very well be the brightest event our network has observed in 5 years of operation.
Using two stations, we have derived the following crude parameters:

Start location: 84.943 W, 34.969 N at an altitude of 97.4 km
Last location: 84.578 W, 35.206 N at an altitude of 37.9 km (this is NOT the lowest point; other stations show it continuing)
Speed: 23.7 km/s
Peak brightness: -10.9
Mass: ~45 kg (roughly 0.3 to 0.4 meters in diameter)
Radiant: RA - 336 +/- 2 deg, Dec +9.8 +/- 4 deg

Breaking News- Daytime Earth-grazing Meteors Near Sunset Possible 28-31AUG2013

Geert Barentsen writes,

"Hi all,

I am currently attending the Meteoroids conference in Poland. At the
meeting, Prof. Peter Brown has just alerted us to the fact that the Daytime
Craterids (DCR) have unexpectedly shown up in the Canadian Meteor Orbit
Radar (CMOR). You can see the radar detection for yourself at:

http://fireballs.ndc.nasa.gov/cmor-radiants/

The same shower has previously shown outbursts in 2003 and 2008. A recent
paper by Wiegert et al. discussing those events is available here:

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1365-2966.2011.18432.x/pdf

If the previous outbursts are anything to go by, the shower might last for
several days and increase in activity. Whether this might produce meteors
at visible wavelengths is essentially unknown, but amateur astronomers at
Southern latitudes are strongly encouraged to keep an eye out for
earth-grazing meteors near sunset.

I have put together this animation which shows locations on Earth where
such earth-grazers *might* be visible over the next 24 hours:

We recorded this on Wednesday on a walk through the desert near the hill of La Ventana. I see that there is another video on YouTube about the same phenomenon (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeZ0xS ...). I'm no expert but I think it's a meteor and must have fallen about. Asking the locals walking around I noticed they did not want to talk about it and they said they had not seen anything but it's hard not to have seen anything. Something weird out there in the desert.

Grabamos esto el miércoles en una caminata por el desierto cerca del cerro de La Ventana. Veo que existe otro videos en YouTube sobre el mismo fenómeno (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeZ0xS...). No soy experto pero creo que es un meteoro y debió de haber caído cerca. Preguntándoles a la poca gente local por ahí noté que no querían hablar del tema y me dijeron que no habían visto nada pero está difícil que no hubieran visto nada. Algo raro hay por ahí en el desert.

Initial Meteor Sighting Report-
25AUG2013 Denise Totah Lubbock Texas 5:00 a.m. 5 maybe 10 seconds west to east right to left I was facing west i thought it was a flash of lightning. I turned to look up and saw this big flash of light and it looked like it had 2 contrails at the end. I thought that maybe a plane had exploded, but there was no sound a little brighter than the moon it looked like 2 trails coming from it after it started disappearing I didn't get a picture, I just know that the flash was bright enough to make me look up to the sky as I thought it was lightning.

Thomas Ashcraft - Heliotown - New Mexico writes,
"Did anyone catch a large fireball on Aug 25 2013 at 0954:50 UT in the
west Texas- eastern New Mexico vicinity? (0354:50 am MDT / 0454:50 am CDT)
I caught a flash behind clouds which might have come from over the
horizon in which case this fireball would have been deeper into north
central Texas.
It should show on space fence radar for Texas observers. It made a 30
second radio reflection at 217 MHz and a two minute reflection on tv
forward scatter frequencies."

Jodie Reynolds, USA PI, and Dirk Ross, Japan Researcher, have spent the past seven days, X20 hours a day, to get reports and information documented and calculated before sending teams to the field.

Maps of the projected strewnfield and overall observer data completed.  An orbit has been calculated for the meteoroid/s.  Maps are available for legitimate Australian Researchers upon request and verification.

A team of four has visited the area to search.  Congrats MeteorRats!  Thanks!

Second team arrived today for search of a different portion of the projection. - no report yet.

In all, three videos of the event have been recovered and several key witnesses came forward with sonics data and sighting information.  Thank you all!
