Correction to my post yesterday: now that there are two dashcam videos of the event
(one from Hollywood, the other from Oceanside), it is clear that the Pacific Ocean bolide
yesterday morning was much further south. The terminal lines of sight intersect at
30d 42.5' N, 118d 24.5' W, over 120 miles west of Baja and almost 150 miles south of
San Clemente Island. I have a kmz file with the two camera locations and my
estimates of the terminal vectors for each if anyone is curious. --Rob

Hi Michael -- yes, it ended up in the drink. I've got it on Santa Ana radar (KSOX) near "Fortymile Bank"
at an altitude of 11.3 km at 14:39:03 UT (6:39:03 am PST). Missed the SoCal coast by about 70 km. :-(
