Just been reading this story on the BBC website. As I know that one or two of you here are in NI (OK, perhaps more than just one or two  Grin ) I wondered if anyone had seen this event last Thursday or had heard anything further (plus I'm well overdue to start a new thread here, anyway)!  Grin

I have been following this story from David Moore's emails from Astronomy Ireland. I missed this fireball unfortunately so don't know much more about it. Hopefuly more sightings will come in. I wonder what the chances are of finding any meteorite from it, if it did produce one. Probably a small object, would be cool if they could find it though. Keeping an eye on the story...
