Observer
NameGilles O
Experience Level5/5
RemarksWas outside to observe the passage of HTV-9 and was looking for the Cygnus NG-13 passage. Few minutes past 0:00 as the church bells had rung. Shooting star / fireball seemed to come from the height and direction of Arcturus which was almost dead south and passed slightly to the east of zenith before ending in the north north east. Had to spin on a leg to follow it. It was not extremely bright in my opinion and felt quite slow. No clear fragmentation but a few degree long tail.
