Dear sitemaster,
I saw the following information on you website:
This fireball was also photographed from Borne (the Netherlands) by my
all-sky station EN94 and also from Benningbroek (the Netherlands) by the
all-sky station EN95 of Jos Nijland.
My image is published on my website: http://results.all-sky.nl/ 
Direct link to the images is:

Beside this image I also made a simultaneous calculation of this event this
afternoon that is also published on my website:
www.all-sky.nl Direct link is: http://simultaneous.all-sky.nl/

And last but not least the event was also caught on video by Martin Breukers
from Hengelo (The Netherlands). See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SbJAXEDpwk

Hi Dirk,
Turns out this fireball was actually over the northern Netherlands.
With an end-height of 34 km it is a borderline case for a dropper.
below calculations are by Peter van Leuteren based on the all-sky images from
Borne and Benningbroek (both in the Netherlands), see
