This report has been linked to the following event: Event 4590-2017
Observer
NameLeo S
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI saw this while trying to observe the Antares Rocket Body reentry, along with my wife, so we were keeping a close eye on timings. It would have been just after midnight, and could not be later than 00:03 as it took me a few minutes to get indoors and check the time, which by then was 00:07 UT. Unfortunately the event was almost completely obstructed by nearby trees. The sky lit up, which caused me to turn around, and see the fireball, which was medium-slow speed, for a further 3-4 seconds before it disappeared behind the horizon. It may well have fragmented, but it was impossible to tell. Impressive none the less!
