Brett Abernethy’s image of the Dec 20, 2014 fireball looking south over Mt. Rundle near Johnson Lake. The fireball crossed the constellation of Orion and then began fragmenting where the trail brightens and broadens. Note the slight reddening at the fireball’s end as the surviving rock fragments slowed and cooled before falling to the ground.  Photo courtesy of Brett Abernethy. All rights reserved.
