  1. We saw what we think was the brightest meteor/shooting star about 1730 in a north easterly direction. It fell rapidly over a period of about 5 seconds. We have never seen one this big or bright or long and initially thought it might be a plane falling. Did anyone else see this cracking sight over the north essex region?

  2. It may well have been a Geminid meteor. The Geminids are currently approaching their peak of activity, and they are often quite bright with a persisting trail.
