EN-98 FireballsPosted by Koen Miskotte Sun, January 19, 2014 11:19:14

In the evening of januari 18, 2014 at 20:18 UT a very bright fireball appeared above the North see. This fireball lasted many seconds and was estimated by casual observers as a magnitude -10 or brighter meteor.
My all sky camera captured this bright meteor. A picture below.
