19SEP2012 Barry Holbeach Lincolnshire, UK 19.22 UK time 4 secs E - W facing to North very bright white fire sun no large long burn, half speed of perseid, low in sky / horizontal/ seemed to dip near finish/ don't think it completely burned up

19SEP2012 Simon Rummery Kirton, near Boston, Lincolnshire, UK 19.23 BST It lasted about 2 seconds. I was driving north on the A16 road. The meteor fell from low in the NE to NNE at an angle of 30 degrees. It was a very bright fast moving green light with a trail. It was brighter than Venus. I didn't see any fragmentation. Observed through the car windscreen at early dusk; the sky was still light.

19SEP2012 Andrew Tyas Sheffield,UK 18:21 GMT (19:21 local time due to daylight saving) Estimate that I was looking at it for 3-4 sec before it faded I was facing NE. Meteor travelled right to left and appeared go be heading slightly away from me so I'd estimate that it was heading towards NNE. It was about 20 deg above horizon and on trajectory about below horizontal Bright green. Didn't hear sound ( I was in car with radio on) Much brighter than Venus. Nowhere near as bright as Moon No. Have seen one fragmenting before. This was a single point None

Spotted around 19:20 hrs 19/09/12. We saw it falling from right to left at speed glowing white with some orange around it until it fell out of out sight altogether. Fantastic thing! Paul Reames, Potterhanworth, Lincolnshire
