I recall reading a few years back that there was an effort to assemble
a network of cameras in Arizona which would continuously monitor the
night sky for just this type of event. If I remember, there were at
least a couple of prototype installations in the Flagstaff area. I
wonder if any stations within this network recorded the event. Given the
distances of observers on the AMS map from the estimated path of the
object, it would seem that it the event should have been visible from
There are the 'LO-CAMS' systems running on Mars Hill and
also at the DCT near Happy Jack. So those should have caught it.
Nick Moskovitz is in charge of these:
There are in addition similar set-ups in New Mexico.
So if this event appeared as described, there will be plenty
of actual measurements of it to pin down the location
far better than could be done from visual reports.
