Long enduring fireball train on Aug27

There appears to have been a fireball at 12:56UT on the evening of Aug27 to the east of Coonabarabran. The area was under cloud and rain at the time, but this quickly cleared to the east and a train was recorded drifting across the eastern and southern sky from Coonabarabran over the following 3.5 hours.

All these photos were accidental, but it would be useful to get other reports and photos. There is the possibility that the AAT took spectra through the train, but they will need information on the train's position and drift to know.

The train was very similar to the impressive long duration train imaged by Phil Hart a year of so ago, and seen in the link below.

I'll pass on any reports to the AAT.
