This report has been linked to the following event: Event 5930-2021
Observer
NameLucas B
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThis was a really bright fireball with intermittent sparking trail very close to the ball. Although the video quality is not great (1080p dash cam with a dirty windscreen) the observation was extremely clear - and very exciting! In the video you see the fireball appear at approximately 17 seconds in, between the shrub and the first lamppost quite near the top of the screen. It travels slightly downwards toward the right of the screen going out of sight at approx 21 seconds in. I left the first part of the video in for context in terms of direction of travel.
