Observer
NameGraeme B
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI wasn’t sure what I saw and first thought it was a firework but then I saw other possible sightings on Twitter and feel it was probably a large meteor. The interesting thing was how close it appeared to a plane that was flying near Heathrow Airport.
