Description

Seeing was very good tonight, but the ground winds were too breezy for the C14. A flash, likely to be a bolide impact, was observed on the SEBs while recording through the red filter. I only noticed it thanks to DeTeCt, a program written by Marc Delcroix for the purpose of detecting these events.

Notes:

  • White Oval Z is setting.
  • The EZ is still orange.
  • The SEBn is very pale.
  • The GRS appears a bit egg-shaped.
