Initial Meteor Sighting Reports-
12NOV2014 Dr Jack Lee Winslow, UK 22.33 UTC/GMT 20 United Kingdom white/orange Venus No I was observing with my telescope and saw a birght meteor shoot from North West to West. Birghtest I have ever seen in long time astronomy. Left a long cloud in the sky for many minutes

12NOV2014 Chris Cullen Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, England 22.20 UTC/GMT 7 North to South Larger fireball, 10x larger than brightest star, looked below jet aeroplane height, bright orange tail,. I thought it was going to reach land, but made a tiny 'phut' sound as it burnt out. 10x bigger/brighter than brightest visible object in night sky (no moon visible). No It was fairly slow moving for a meteorite compared to previous higher objects observed. The tail was much broader too. Must have bee lower as distinct colour (orange) could be seen.
