Fireball

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.
