Bill Cooke of NASA confirms!
"Confirm bright event on November 30 at 03:35:50 UTC (November 29, 22:35:50 EST)..""Confirm slow and low event, seen in 4 cameras. Trajectory solution is as follows:
Start location: 86.267 W, 33.959 N at an altitude of 75.0 km
End location: 86.178 W, 33.757 N at an altitude of 37.5 km
Initial speed of 16.0 +/- 0.7 km/s
Decelerated to 9.2 km/s

Technically a possible meteorite dropper, but IMO not likely, as it seems to have small mass based on the meteor brightness. No terminal flare."
Regards,
Bill
