After checking my meteor camera recordings from last night, I noticed that it captured a very bright meteor at 06:21UT - easily the brightest that I have captured to date. The meteor would have passed directly over Kildare and north Wicklow. Even though the sky was hazy and the camera could only barely see a few stars, the mneteor easily shone through the cloud. The software reckons that it is a Geminid with an estimated magnitude of -6.

Did anyone here see it?
