Accuracy[edit]

Distant observations and calculations were not accurate. Film footage linked in references is from a great distance to one side of the object, perhaps several hundred miles. --Steve D. Gage (talk) 23:55, 29 March 2008 (UTC)

How close did it come in 1997[edit]

What calculations were done as to the 1997 return ? - Rod57 (talk) 14:37, 22 June 2012 (UTC)

How close to the surface?[edit]

If you look at 48 seconds on this clip, or at 5 seconds on the Wiki video clip, you will see that the meteor passed through that small cloud, pulling a tongue of vapour out with it, just as an aircraft would. This means the meteor was only about 3 km up (say 10,000 ft), and not the 57 km up claimed in the article.

The Wiki video clip shows more than the other. It shows the cloud before the meteor emerges; the other deletes that. You can clearly see that there was a feature like a horizontal knife cut in the cloud before the object came out the right side. As to the object pulling a tongue of vapor out, the object is leaving a smoke/vapor trail all across the sky as it travels. It's debatable, but consider the evidence of the military data. If that might have been edited for public consumption, then the video might also have been - and we know the Spanish version was, it was cropped. Government coverups do exist, but not all things are government coverups. Ask yourself, does it really make sense for the government to misreport the altitude of a meteor? The game is to get the truth, even when it's prosaic. Friendly Person (talk) 14:18, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
