Usually, members of the public are good at spotting meteors in the UK, but this time we have received only a few sighting reports.
Jim Rowe quickly notified us about his matching capture.
Richard Fleet and his 360 degrees coverage means no fireball passes by his cameras. Captured by North and North-West cameras.
Camera based in Northern Ireland also captured this fireball at a great distance.
Additionally we have found a match from Clanfield camera.
Additionally we have found a match from Church Crookham camera.
Richard has been sending us lovely images of his captured meteors for some time now, and this time there is no exception. Another excellent capture.
