Observer
NameLorna M
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThe tail may have been further fragmented in appearance. The seeing was good, but led streetlights in the direction of the fireball were dazzling. The object disappeared to the right of Arcturus, probably below Coma and above Virgo. I found the direction indicator quite tricky to use.
