I was trying to locate comet 2012 X1 (Linear) last night. The comet has had a spectacular outburst. Unfortunately it was just too low down for an evening observation (behind a house). However as compensation at around 19.10 bst there was a cracking sporadic meteor! Maybe not quite fireball brightness, ~ -1/-2, but lovely golden colour with some trailing fragmentation. Quite slow moving lasting a full second with the train another second or so. Really nice.
