Observer
NameChristopher P
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was looking south from sully in Wales across the Bristol channel towards Hinckley point. The fireball came from right to left. It had a very bright white and large main body with a beautiful long green tail.It seemed to be travelling a little slower than most meteors that I've witnessed in the past. It lasted for about 3 seconds then burned out almost directly under Jupiter
