It was a very good night for shooting stars – with many sightings of fireballs reported by our astronomers at Bayfordbury. One particular fireball image from Bayfordbury was very impressive and left a persistent train visible for ten seconds (see Bayfordbury AllSky Camera image below) – and was also seen by the UK Meteor network.
Last night was the peak time to see the shooting stars – but for any of you who may have missed them, there is another opportunity this evening – let’s hope for clear skies again! But do wrap up warmly as it was a little chilly outside last night!
