Hi Bill,

That’s a nice example of this type of dissolving meteor trail. I’ve had very cloudy skies and the only meteor recorded so far this year by my Leeds_N camera looks to be your event!

From my viewpoint the meteor travelled from upper right to lower left.

 Does this ground map approximately match your alignment?

Single station analysis of my capture suggests it was an Ursid meteor. I’ll ask if it was recorded by any other stations in the NEMETODE network then we can confirm its radiant and orbit.

A great start to the New Year.
