Data on several of the brightest fireballs and bolides that were detected from 2009-2015 by U.S. Government sensors
Originator: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Fireballs and bolides are exceptionally bright meteors, usually ones that reach a visual magnitude of -3 or brighter from the observer's zenith. Fireballs that explode in the atmosphere are technically referred to as bolides, but the terms are often used interchangeably. This dataset displays the date, time, and location for 92 distinct fireball events, along with their 3-component velocity, total radiant energy, and calculated total impact energy.
