December 8, 2008 - Fireball “100 Times Brighter Than Full Moon”
Explodes Over Colorado.
“In seven years of operation (Cloudbait Observatory, Colorado),
this is the brightest fireball I've ever recorded. I estimate the terminal
explosion at magnitude -18, more than 100 times brighter
than a full moon.” - Chris Peterson, Ph.D., Astronomer


December 6, 2008, at 1:28 AM MST, the Cloudbait Observatory's
all-sky camera photographed an exploding fireball estimated by observatory
astronomer, Chris Peterson, Ph.D., to be “100 times brighter than a full moon.”
Cloudbait Observatory is near Guffey, Colorado, in the Rocky Mountains
west of Colorado Springs in Park County.
On November 20, 2008, a 10-ton meteorite exploded over Lloydminster,
Saskatchewan, Canada. See: December 6, 2008, Video by Cloudbait Observatory.
