SAAO Image of Fragment Q2 Impact


Image from 30 inch by Kaz Sekiguchi covering the period of the flash from the impact of fragment Q2 on July 20. The exposure time was 10 sec, hence the noisy background. The impression of the observers was that this flash was brighter than any other so far, but the flash was of shorter duration. The sequence stops before the end of the event.
