1st 2020 UK Fireball
Observing location
Thames Valley
HIK Security Camera
Possibly 6fps.

Noticed the IMO had details of a recorded Event 158-2020   which suggested that one of my cameras may well have recorded what must be the 1st UK Fireball of 2020..H265 Recording issues prevented immediate processing. However as a prelude to Talks I Recorded it slowed by about 2x and magnified a little. Brightness variations are thus seen almost as Breathing. With recent University gearing up for any 'DROPS' I thought possibly useful for Practice Track evaluation?
