Eyewitness Station 6 Attendant
Eye witness Abdel Moniem Magzoub, an attendant at Station Six – near where Asteroid 2008TC3 entered the atmosphere - describes where he saw the fireball explosion in the sky to interviewer Muawia Shaddad of the University of Khartoum, Sudan. On Oct. 7, 2008, the bright light from the first explosion woke Magzoub up. He then saw the fireball briefly continue to glow until he saw a second smaller explosion.
