    I have a picture of what appears to be an exploding red spot. I am wondering if it could be a meteor that was traveling a path nearly directed towards me. I have other meteors as streaks, the normal kind and I can understand the difference between meteors, planes and satellites. This one has me baffled.
    I can also send it to you if it interests you. You might find it in the Jan 10, 2019, ugly hedgehog blog by Saidel42, section Astronomical Photography Forum, with the title, “An explanation needed.”
    I hope this query interests you enough to rsvp.
    Thank you,

      Bill – I looked at the photo. It’s an interesting image! I suspect your right that it’s a meteor viewed nearly face on during entry. It’s interesting how large the debris is from it. Most meteors look pretty small in photographs. The red color indicates that it’s not very hot, but I’m not sure how that changes the assessment.
      Here’s a link for anyone else interested:
      Thanks for sending in your question!
