Bolide Meteor Video From Space

by , under Mason Dixon Meteor

This is NOT the Mason Dixon Meteor. My friend Mark emailed me this video after he saw it on an astronomy forum. I lifted the video off of you tube and re-edited it to remove 1:40 minutes of dead time. I then looped the video 5 times so you can see it. It was originally posted as a UFO video, so it could be fake, but some people think it is a fireball meteor. I wanted to put it out there to see what you think. LMK by leaving a comment.

here is the original post from the space.com discussion forum.

    Apparently from STS-80, which flew in ’96. I saw this floating around the web yesterday but don’t know why it suddenly cropped up now. It would be useful to know what they’re pointing the camera at, but its definitely an IR-sensitive camera that features a fair number of saturated pixels. Cool video!
