Large fireball over New Mexico

There was a super-sized meteor over New Mexico last night at 0804 UT, (
2:04 am MDT). I have posted my preliminary video and radio observations.
Interestingly, the forward scatter radio reception was only moderate and
of short duration compared to its size and ionization trail. And I was
also observing at VLF/ELF frequencies and there may be some direct
emission evident but it is still being analyzed. I posted three movies
in .mp4 format at the link below.
