Draconid captured?

EN-98 FireballsPosted by Koen Miskotte Mon, October 08, 2012 10:47:20

Update: unfortunately it is not a meteor, but a satellite.

Last night my all sky camera EN-98 captured a possible Draconid near alpha Ursa Minor (Polaris). The recording suffers from a vibration in the box caused by the rotating sector. This problem has been solved.

Picture 1: Draconid (???) near the star Polaris (alpha UMI). Draco's "head is at the left of this image. Click on the image for a larger version.
