About this image

A nice bright sporadic (?) meteor of peak apparent magnitude -2.6 displaying terminal fragmentation.

My UFO Capture camera Leeds_W also recorded its initial phase and Nick James captured it from Chelmsford. Our multi-station data confirms its ground track was over north Wales; a sporadic meteor with an absolute magnitude of -3.5, a relatively slow Vg of ~27 km/s and a radiant in Draco.
