    Hi.  That is my capture and I am going to post a star field map of the 
    fireball moment and will post a link when I get it done. I can pull out 
    some stars but the stars need to be differentiated from hot pixels to 
    avoid confusion.
    I will post a note soon.
    The .mp4 video is reduced from the original .dv video and shows around 
    37 seconds of flight but the original video shows at least 42.5 seconds 
    before the fireball disappears into dawn light.
    Thanks for your interest.
