This report has been linked to the following event: Event 98-2022
Observer
NameAndrew R
Experience Level4/5
RemarksThere was a point at which the entire light trail had burnt out/ stopped, but I could still see the actual glowing "head" or meteor glowing red moving through the sky. This of course dissipated as the meteor cooled. Duration of this could only have been 0.5 secs or less, but it was very distinct orange in colour.
