HUGE GREEN FIREBALL NEAR MAUNAKEA OBSERVATORY Taken by Frankie Lucena on October 14, 2018 @ CFHT Cloudcam in Maunakea, Hawaii

I was searching the CFHT Cloudcam database for red sprites or jets and came across this very bright fireball that lit up the sky. It was so bright that the dome of one of the observatories managed to capture the green reflection of the fireball.

The event was captured on Oct 14, 2018 at 13:43:56 UTC (03:43:56 HST).

Here is a link to the hi-res animation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCasVYxBsBk&feature=youtu.be
