Hi Robin,

I think my Leeds_SE meteor video camera recorded the early phase of the same event.

It timed its appearance at 20:00:05.3 UTC but of course the start of the trail was swamped by Moonlight.

The UFO Analyser software gave it a magnitude of -0.4 as it left my FOV. Yet again, the bright sky will have affected this estimate.

I’m sure that other video stations will have recorded the meteor, so that we can identify its shower membership, ground track and solar system orbit.

Clear skies,
