Following reports from the public on the Astronomy Ireland FB page, I checked my SW facing camera for last Saturday, March 16th. Fortunately the impressive fireball was captured, doubly so since the records are overwritten after a week. I estimate a 25 degree long path in a general Alphard-Sirius direction, magnitude -7. The 10 day moon located on the Gemini/Cancer border at this time, 224826 UT.

Brilliant capture, I bet the guys at NEMETODE are interested in that. Where in Ireland are you based?

Well done again

Is that snow in the video with the fireball?

If it is, how ironic is that?

Real heat and real freeze combined!

Good man Finbarr.

No Aubrey, those are dust particles lit up by the infra-red lens.

I'm based in Co Limerick Ronan. It was just a lucky catch from a security cam turned more skywards than it should be ;)

Thanks,
Finbarr.
