    The column of light down the center smacks of photoshop. I question its authenticity.

    I don't know but it's gotten massive attention. Haven't heard any doubters yet.

    The brightness of the stars speaks of a very fast stop/CCD camera and that would explain the column of light.
    Also the varied colours of the meteor flash are accurately reflected in the water. If it is photoshop then they have done it well.
