Well, at around 2:52 I picked it up flying from the north and headed off into ths 
southwest, or so it looked. It had a white tail about 5 or so degrees about 20 
degrees above the horizon. I saw a couple of flashes as it got directly west. It took 
about 5 minutes to disappear into the SW at about 15 degrees elevation. My Sandia 
meteor camera did not register the trail. I did get some video, but knocked out a 
section by accidentally hitting pause when trying to signal my wife to come outdoors.
