Video Simulation Of Meteor

by , under Mason Dixon Meteor

This video is not REAL! Its just a simulation. A few nights after the meteor flew over I setup a CSI re-enactment of the event. I put my scope at the location where I believe the picture was taken the night before. I used a laser to pinpoint where in the sky my scope was pointing. (the accuracy of the position may be flawed, but this video is just meant to illustrate what it may have looked like.)

This is a simulation / best guess. Please if you are a meteor expert and have criticism of this simulation please send it to me so we can make improvements to the video.

Special thanks to Doctor Vincent Perlerin and his associates from Paris for analyzing the pictures and working on this video. Vincent you are the man!
