Reports Report 631aa (Event 631-2016)

This report has been linked to the following event: Event 631-2016
Observer
NameGreg V
Experience Level4/5
RemarksSince the meteor occurred only a few minutes after local sunset, fairly low on the horizon, and through some distant clouds, the brightness estimation was tricky. I compared it to the Moon, but this was standing much higher in a clear sky. My guess is that the true brightness could well have been brighter than a full Moon.

Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksI would say yes, but with the following caveat: the fireball occurred shining through gaps in a distant cloud cover. Hence, the 4 consecutive "flares" I observed, of which the last one was the brightest, might have been due to gaps in the cloud cover.
