Well done Nick.  I thought you may have done comparing camera coverage.  I think Peter Carson may have as well.

Hopefully, others may have as well and more details could be determined regarding it's flight path and orbit.

Nice captures! Well done!

Too far out of my camera FOV and nothing on radio either.

Interesting shots - keep them coming.  Unfortunately radio meteor monitoring was alas off line at that time.
