The lovely meteor that I accidentally deleted today. It crossed my 6mm fov in the north facing camera just after 11pm on the 2nd Dec. Its path almost covered the entire frame from side to side. Quite bright and not too fast. Difficult to pinpoint the position or trajectory now that I've lost it, but I'd guess at somewhere between Oxford and Northampton travelling NNE to SSW.
I was attempting to re-analyse the avi to correct a slight error in the trajectory path and clicked the delete button by mistake.
Unfortunately for me, any files deleted from within UFO Analyser don't end up in the recycle bin. It seems they get deleted permanently. Such is my loss, it was a really good clip.
I possibly caught the beginning of it on my SE facing camera (which is rotated 90 degrees within the CCTV housing and so what appears to be the bottom of the FOV is actually the left hand side) - timed at 20141202_230504 - does this sound about the right time?
Yes I would put money on both those captures being the same one I deleted. I'm gutted because I caught the whole trail across the frame and never got to finish analysing it. (and because I'm new to this and its exciting. ) I had only just activated the cam at 11pm when I saw the stars appearing from the clouds. This was only the 2nd meteor of the night.
I have the trashbox unchecked in UFO capture and deleted clips do go in the recycle bin. The problem is when I deleted the clip from OFO Analyser. It doesn't go to the bin but just vanishes into the Ether.
I'll try a recovery app and see if I succeed.
Its good to know that we all have overlapping coverage.
