Nice! I was hoping some satellite would catch it or at least the infrared afterglow.

Errr, NO. Very no.

"008 QS11 (classified as an Apollo-type NEO) will reach on 02 October 2008 the minimum distance from Earth (0.02767 A.U.) "

That's about 4 million km, or 10 times the earth-moon distance.

Full inline quote removed - Admin

according to an italian forum, MAYBE a page appeared on NASA site predicting a 1:79 chance to hit Earth (or enter atmosphere??), but page would be no more visible...

But actually I think somebody thaught that "REMOVED" from risk list means "HIDDEN", although it means "NO MORE RISKFUL"...

I haven't seen their ideas on whether the Meteosat images captured the streaking bolide or the fading fireball after disintegration. The fact IR and visible channel hotspot locations don't match, it's plausible the IR frame was captured a couple of seconds earlier with the "RGB" channels capturing the static fireball.
Thoughts?

Looks like our doubts on the 2008 TC3 video were correct:
