Some interesting results from down here in Melbourne (Au). I spent 45 minutes meteor scanning (flipping neck is killing me!). I try and get out
there once a week or so, and occasionally catch the odd 1 or 2 per night.
But tonight I saw a total of 4! My daughter saw 3 of those because I made her come outside saying the chances were pretty good.
Luckily, she saw the best one, which was quick orange and the most spectacular one I've ever seen. Although, it was nowhere near
fireball/bolide/Ural sized, just a beautiful display. No boom was heard, quickly vanished no left over trail visible, so I assume it was very high.
Directions is puzzling me.
1st running (approx) East-> West
2nd traversing SthEast -> NorWest
3rd went West -> East? Must have been completely a fluke!
4th was the best one (orange) going SthEast -> NorWest
So, combined with the fly-by... maybe the third odd one out was a tiny companion tagging behind 2012 DA14? But with the Ural/Cuba/Florida sightings
I'd advise if you get a chance, drag your kids outside and hopefully they will catch a quick wish
