The image is a composite from the AVI video. I used  HandyAVI meteor detection capture software. Unfortunately, I was inside my observatory and did not see it. The smaller brightening to the N/W occurred just prior to the fireball. Also, the meteor has a "wavy" appearance. The meteor produced a significant train.  The star Arcturus is in the image.
