    Anybody see the fireball at 17:30 (Delvin Westmeath) tracking from North north east to south west? Was pretty amazing and a nice long trail.

    I saw a meteor at about 21:30 to my west from Dublin. Must be the Geminids getting going.

    Perhaps some space junk entering atmosphere.

    This must be a record year with all these recent sightings?
    It's definitely has to be up there anyway.

    Bit lucky that we've missed a big one this year.
