Evening 1 June 2017 at 23:40 - 23:50 saw the usual ISS pass over the UK. A very popular event among general public and amateur astronomers.
But something else was spotted too. That evening we have started receiving fireball reports just minutes after midnight. It appears to be very bright meteor/fireball, lasting few seconds and been spotted from Nottingham to Guernsey but as far as French Lorient and Rennes.
Usually our cameras have good coverage Southern half of the UK but this time we have’t found a match just yet.
After a detailed search Wilcot station got a match, as reported by Richard Fleet.
And a rough direction of the event
Great article describing the event at Dawlish Beach: This is not the moon! so just what are you looking at?
The flash at the bottom of the image was captured by the NLO all-sky cam operated by Steve Boyce.
