Meteor Visible on LaPlata Cam
Author: MSE

A meteor is visible on the primary (pointing east) La Plata cam at 21:12 this evening, just as the gates are coming on for a UPRR eastbound and just before #3 arrives.

So why is it visible between the building and the camera ?  Something doesn't add up here or am I messed up ?

^I noticed that too... Don't think it's a meteor for that reason, think it might just be a bug (there were a ton of them flying around) that happened to be flying in a pretty straight line. That would also explain why it was moving so slowly.

That was likley the ISS Space Station, it would have been visiblie in Missouri at 9:12 PM and would have dispappered in the East sky.  Monday should have a similar track at 9:15 .

This one had sparks coming off of it, like a car muffler dragging.

Oh I didn't see the webcam, justy speculating since it was visible over all of Missouri at 9:12PM.  Maybe Elon Musk SpaceX was sparking at the time.....
