steorra: Jupiter's moon Europa (europa)
[personal profile] steorra posting in [community profile] astronomy
I posted about a week ago about a double meteor sighting on September 21st where calculations seemed to show that they were in fact the same object which had once skimmed through Earth's atmosphere, then out again, then gone around the earth and re-entered the atmosphere.

Other/newer calculations are showing that that seems not to have happened after all. Instead, it seems like it really was just two independent fireballs.

I'm not sure the question is 100% resolved yet. Science takes time.
