    My camera picked up a very bright meteor and well placed to get a spectrum.  Brightness at -3.5 might be subject to some error in the analysis software due to the presence of the bright moon.  However, the meteor spectrum is brighter than the spectrum of Venus (mag -4) so I estimate meteor magnitude was brighter than Venus.  If anyone captured this and has the data, it would be great to triangulate it.

    Great catch,

    It looks like a stony job with a very strong magnesium line and early start sodium. If you get an orbit, I’d  bet on a low-ish Vg….

    Thank you Bill, it’s a nice one

    I’m not that far on orbits yet, just UA Analyser.  I’m still hoping someone will have caught it.  I’ll post a digitised spectrum once I choose one of the decent green LASER calibration files.
