BemerkungenThis was the brightest fireball I've ever seen in over 40 years of observational and photographic astronomy. My sky conditions were partially overcast. I first noticed the fireball near the zenith and lost it below my tree line at about 35 degrees elevation in the northwest. It still had a very bright trail as it went below the tree tops out of my sight. There were broken mid-level clouds along its trajectory but its light easily penetrated those. My location is very rural and quiet and I immediately started my stopwatch and listened for 10 minutes for a potential sonic boom (I've heard one once before several years ago associated with another bright meteor). However, no sonic boom was heard. Also, due to the cloud layer, I could not determine if the meteor left a persistent trail. The precise time of the observation (+/- 2 seconds) was 00:34:25 EDT.
