US Department of Defence Public Releases of Bolide Data

Archive of Fireball Data Releases


The following are press releases/notifications of atmospheric fireball events (bolides).

Information in the releases is derived from data from optical and infrared sensors aboard United States Government satellites.

Commencing in August 2008, each release will include a visible-light intensity versus time waveform, as well as an integration of that waveform to depict event radiated energy.
