Observer
NameMarc N
Experience Level4/5
RemarksHeading east to west in late october in northern hemisphere (observed in Cambourne, south cambridgeshire, UK). The meteor was slow moving, bright and pure white. It appeared brighter than Jupiter and Venus, and appeared almost directly overhead (slightly <90°). The meteor faded as it passed overhead, but I'm unsure when it became visible in the east as the view was blocked by a building.
