Observing location
Rushay Farm Observatory Dorset (Z42)

Not recorded

Learned that a fireball had been recorded on video by Richard Bassom of Wessex Astronomical Society - it was the Society's Picture of the Week". Looking at images saved from my all sky camera I discovered the event. It must have been spectacular visually, but I was asleep!
