Good catch, I take the dog out every night at midnight or later and see shooting stars,(no light pollution here) earlier this year I saw my first fire ball.

Its amazing to see something that's travelled unimaginable distances through the vastness of space to burn up in our atmosphere, and you know you are probably the only person to see it.

Once I was monitoring security CCTV and saw something moving in the distance, it was a very dark and isolated place,
I went out to investigate only to find it must have been foxes or something similar.

To my amazement in the darkness of it all, I spotted a large meteor fireball heading my way.

It was that close I could hear it crackling as it passed seemingly right over my head.
I shall never forget this night, it was an amazing experience.

Nice catch there Ken, :flop: what gets me is how or why it changed course so abruptly.
