At 11.38 last night the skies were lit up over our Blenheim cam with our best catch to date of a Fireball or Meteor whichever name you choose. After talking to our friends from the UK monitoring site the fireball was reported by over 50 members of the public. This particular type is known as a Bolide fireball which means that it is brighter than the moon. The team are still collating information on this particular event but they do have some other footage and the trajectory they believe the fireball took. Our footage does disagree with the information though as it would have appeared from left to right from their suggestion. Normally they try to triangulate the positions from a minimum of three stations and so our footage has been of great use. Please have a look at their write up at
This is not the moon! so just what are you looking at?

I saw this from Chertsey in Surrey. I just happened to be looking at Jupiter when I saw the meteor come down. I saw greens and orange in the flames it was pretty awesome.
