That’s a massive hit compared to your usual postings Graham 

 

It is that David.

Shame it happened in daylight

Whatever it was seems to have broken up into several pieces and using the Doppler effect it was heading towards me so should have been visible.

So from that plot are you able to make a reasonable estimate of its likely magnitude? 

 

You probably can Clive.

I personally cannot as I don't know the calculations needed.

I will make some inquiries

This beauty landed this morning.

Must have been a spectacular sight.

Or it would have been if it was dark.

I have thought about trying to detect daylight meteors with a DSLR but that's as far as I've got.

Unless it is a fire ball I don't think you will have much success
