Sanderson seems to have been mostly interested in the path of the meteor. By interviewing witnesses of the object in the sky, he claimed that it travelled at 1000 miles an hour and changed direction.

Sanderson wasn;t an astronomer, however. Calculations by Chamberlain and Krause, who were, found a completely different trajectory entirely consistent with a meteor.
