2015-11-14 00:14:57 UT: sporadic meteor

EN-98 FireballsPosted by Koen Miskotte Mon, November 16, 2015 15:42:20

During the night of 13/14 november 2015 my all sky camera captured 2 sporadic meteors. This is the second one. I also observed it visually, it was a very slow meteor of magnitude 0 (a bit underestimated, it was probably magn. -1 or -2). It also showed fragmentation and a glittery tail.
