I just happened to be imaging  in the right part of the sky! If I remove the haze, which was actually there, the meteor fades.

Never mind the bit of haze, that is very nice widefield image. The meteor is going straight to the head of Davis's Dog asterism. :thumbsup:

As with all these asterisms you have to use a bit of imagination, just like with most constellations. :)

 

Asterisms are fun. You'll find Davis's Dog and a few other little gems in this list...

Thanks Pete! Good info as usual 😊

Found it! I think the meteor is more likely to be heading for Davis’s dogs tail though, or is it me? It appears easy to find in bins between the Hyades and Pleiades too! I will have a look at this next chance plus have further look on the asterism site!

Cheers 👍

Quite possibly Steve. But that is exactly the problem with some of these spurious asterisms. :D

I have a book detailing 3600 asterisms! :rolleyes:

 

A good 3550 of them are rather spurious and it makes a very boring read. :screwloose:
