 This Fireball event was detected also by MBIQ very shortly after the event but I failed to get it posted; later three reports. Possible meteorites, but perhaps unlikely!? -LunarMeteoriteHunter, Tokyo

I saw the same - posted on FB at the time that I'd seen something through the window in Dunning, Perthshire at the same time as the Kirrimuir footage. 5-10 seconds of slow moving bright light effervescent green tail with blue too. Just disappeared.
