Dozens of Fireballs captured on Camera on Sept. 29-30, 2011
Pay mind to the editing, as many of these were replayed, reversed, and/or slowed down. At no point were there two objects falling one after the other… didn’t see anything like that in any of the videos that I looked through.
This is leaving out dozens of lesser fireballs from the same nights, there were many…
Maybe one or two from a day or two after have gotten mixed in, but only smaller ones. Date/timestamps in the corners for your reference
You’ll find the majority of the small clips:
Draconid Meteor Outburst on October 8, 2011
On October 8th, Earth will pass through a network of dusty filaments shed by Comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner. Forecasters expect the encounter to produce anywhere from a few dozen to a thousand meteors per hour visible mainly over Europe, northern Africa and the Middle East. The meteors will stream from the northern constellation Draco–hence their name, the “Draconids.”
Peak rates should occur between 1600 UT and 2200 UT (noon – 6 pm EDT) as Earth grazes a series of filaments nearly intersecting our planet’s orbit. Analysts at the NASA Meteoroid Environment Office prepared this plot showing how the meteor rate is likely to vary:
If the maximum around 1900 UT reaches 1000 meteors per hour, as one forecaster expects, the 2011 Draconids will be classified as a full-fledged meteor storm.
