DETECTION OF BOLIDE
On July 23, at 22:19:11 UTC, several DOD satellites recorded the bright
flashes of a fireball (bolide) occurrence lasting more than three seconds.
The optical waveform was analyzed, determined to be non-nuclear, and
consistent with past observed bodies. The location of this event was
reported to be in the eastern US.
