NameSteven G
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was a clear night with no or little cloud. The tail of the meteor was quite long, about a hand's width. The whole sighting was about 5 seconds during which the tail lasted for about 3- 3.5 seconds. The meteor disappeared when about 40' in elevation. I did not see any other objects. The sighting was slightly west of normal flight paths for the approach to Glasgow Airport however I did not see any flight activity
