All-Sky View with Fireball

Overnight time-lapsed allsky camera video (2014 images taken over 13 hours on Jan 29-30, 2017 – average exposure per frame about 20 seconds) at Redshift Observatory caught a bright fireball (exploding meteor?) just before 11:00 PM MST in New Mexico. Bright object in the early evening on the right (west) is Venus. Lots of satellites and a few meteors. In case you missed the fireball flash, there is a one-frame image at the end.

Weird Lights

Not sure what this was.  I just know it was not meteors.  Taken 10/25/2016.

Weird Lights Part 2

Taken on June 9, 2016.  I have no idea what this was either but I’m kind of glad I was not there.  Safer to watch this on video.

Iridium Flare

Cool Iridium flare captured from Russian satellite Iridium 68 (originally launched 4/7/1998) by Redshift Observatory’s all-sky camera on October 30, 2016 – Milky Way in background. Center path crossed New Mexico, moving north, several miles away from camera location at 7:40 PM MDT. Timelapse video made from images taken approximately every 60 seconds and then slowed down to 10% speed.
