APOD: 2005 February 8 - A Mysterious Streak Above Hawaii


On the night of 2004 December 17, the fisheye CONCAM perched on top of an active volcano in Haleakala, Hawaii, saw something moving across the night sky that remains mysterious. The NSL team might have disregarded the above streak as unconfirmed, but the Mauna Kea CONCAM on the next Hawaiian island recorded the same thing. The NSL team might then have disregarded the streak as a satellite, but no record of it was found in the site that usually documents bright satellite events. If you think you have a reasonable explanation for the streak, please contribute to the on-line discussion.

Ok, so I guess they figured this one out. It was fuel dump. Makes sense...
