Russian Fireball Meteor Montage
I was out of town and not in a position to be watching TV so I missed out on watching all this when it was newer until I got home Monday and started seeing bits and pieces of this online (I don't have TV). I love how the first scene gives one a great sense of the speed and trajectory of this object relative to the location and trajectory of the dash camera. The contrail images are reminiscent of that captured in a painting by P.J. Medvedev of the February 1947 Sikhote-Alin meteorite fall in Russia.
