Hi All,

Detected from Ravensmoor too. Combining data with that from Alex and Nick, a provisional analysis suggests that the original orbit of the meteoroid was of a low inclination (5.4 degrees) with an aphelion in the vicinity of the asteroid belt.

A sporadic, the absolute magnitude is -1.9 though this may be an underestimate as a consequence of the twilight conditions reducing the number of stars available for comparison.

Suspect this was detected by others so more detail to follow.

Best regards

William
