At about 5:15 AM on 11-05-08, my wide angle SkyCam captured this fantastic fireball North of Port Huron, Michigan. In subsequent frames, the SkyCam recorded the vapor trail it left behind to linger for over 20 minutes! Attached is an image of the meteor and a second image of the vapor trail taken 3 minutes after the meteor had passed. Each frame is a 1 minute exposure. A time lapse video clip of the entire event can be found here:
