Single image from Watec 902H2S video capture pointing SW, ~30 degrees up.  Analysed by UFO Analysis software (Sonotaco), result suggests/indicates kappa Cygnid, magnitude minus 4.  FOVH ~57 deg.

Nice capture.

The time and appearance match my image, so confirms that this was a kappa Cygnid. I have made a submission through the online fireball reporting system. Awaiting the results with interest.
