Impression of a Bolide

Bolide – 16 January 2015

Attached is a sketch of a Bolide meteor observed on the evening of 1-16-2015. I was setting up to image Comet Lovejoy in Cumberland, VA when it appeared. It was near full moon brightness and colors were quite vivid to the naked eye! I nicknamed it “All American Meteor” for its colors! I used colored pencils and Photoshop CS2.
I enjoy your site.
