Total luminous energy for the June 2010 event as a function of bolide black body temperature. Dotted lines (right axis) represent the fraction of flash energy detected in each filter observation. Red indicates the red-band images acquired by A.W. Blue indicates the blue-band images acquired by C.G. Deconvolving the detected light with these efficiencies, we obtain the total luminous energy as deduced from each video observation independently. Error bars represent uncertainties from the light curve analysis. Results from both observations agree in the gray box, indicating a range of temperatures from 6500 K to 8500 K. An extended set of temperatures is obtained from comparison with Earth bolides. The extended set of possible temperatures 3500 K to 10000 K results in larger uncertainties in luminous energy marked by the blue box.
