27 september 2012 at 22:53:07 UT: possible Taurid fireball

EN-98 FireballsPosted by Koen Miskotte Fri, September 28, 2012 16:56:52

During the night 27/28 september 2012 my all sky camera captured this bright meteor.
It lines up perfectly with the southern Taurids radiant (STA), only the trail is a bit longer you would expect on that position.
