Did any members spot  a large meteor  at 01:52am this morning, 19/11/2015?

Large fireball observed "going vertically down". A compass bearing wrt my house, near Lincoln, UK. The village Lat Long is shown below. Sorry no other details.

The IMO Fireball listing for the UK for that date and time has not flagged anything yet on the list or 'pending'. Video cameras of the NEMATODE network will have been active so one or more of the stations may well have picked the event  up.

Captured on my all-sky camera

As William explained above, I captured it on my all-sky camera from Monasterevin, Co. Kildare consisting of a Computar 2.6mm lens and Watch 902H2 Supreme.

Analysis in UFOAnalyser indicates a Leonid.

Great catch, that is an immense terminal flare!
