Mar 15/16/17 Meteors

In the previous post I showed images of a bright fireball seen Sunday evening over Tucson. At the same time a bright fireball was seen in northern California. At first I wondered if the two might have been related, or even the same fireball. Thanks to recent analysis of video data in California by  the Sierra College, we have our answer. No, the 2 fireballs are not the same and also are not related. More info on the March 15 CA fireball can be found here.
