My all-sky camera here in north-central New Mexico caught the Tesla 
"burn" and dump and I am processing it now. But I am not sure I 
understand what the camera captured.

Was the shining visible path of the rocket until the dump caused by 
reflected sunlight? Was there any actual burning? Was there any friction 
with the ionosphere?

I am also scrutinizing for possible forward scatter or direct radio 

IMPORTANT NOTE: I compressed the eight minute long video to just five 
seconds.  It is just a place holder until I process this all further. 
The full event was visible for about eight minutes here.
