Through the clouds

Almost forgot this one - VERY bright white with long tail meteorite yesterday (4 October 2018) at 1946 over Canberra heading W-NW. Bright enough to be easily seen through the over-cast clouds, occasionally showing in the gaps.

VERY long tail as I mentioned and VERY bright - possibly one of the brightest I have seen

I saw one tonight (5th October) Running 35 alt along the eastern horizon at what I’d guess about 19:35. Lasted a good 6 seconds before burning out.
