One can see the fireball
illuminating the clouds from above, so it must have been close to them - and close to the Earth's limb.
On a future occasion the use of a 'windscreen diagram' could be considered, on which the observer draws the line of the fireball
Nevertheless, electrophonic sound from fireballs
, while seemingly real, evades detailed scientific explanation.
In June, a fireball
with almost double the impact energy blasted over the ocean between Australia and Antarctica.
Veteran meteor observers were impressed with both the sheer number of Leonids and the high percentage of bright fireballs
, many blazing in vivid colors.
was also seen from the trawler Regina C off the southeast tip of Greenland an estimated 500 kilometers (300 miles) away.
Other signs, also indirect, include anomalous abundances of certain quark types within particles formed when fireballs
give the exact observing location, date and time, direction, speed, brightness, color, and any associated sounds, with your name and contact information.
However, the shower's streams won't provide a ton of fireballs
Last year, observers did see a large number of meteors but the fireballs
were the standout.
Apeldoorn notes that many "dazzling, slow-moving fireballs
with exceptionally long trajectories" have appeared from April 15th to the 30th during the last 20 or 30 years.
Hornstein continued that the bigger the fireballs
get, the brighter they are making it easier to see because of which it was visible in most of the south Wyoming area.
After hearing results of recent experiments observing collisions between nuclei of lead, many were ready to take seriously the notion that such collisions could produce ultramicroscopic fireballs
of quark-gluon plasma.
AMS received several reports of fireballs
and the recent one was reported from South California.
Which ingredients of the fireballs
came from the comet and which from Jupiter?
