Fireball spotted from the UK this evening 28th February

This just happened in the last couple of hours and some amazing footage already appearing. This will be a developing blog.

First what is a fireball from the American Meteor Society

A fireball is another term for a very bright meteor, generally brighter than magnitude -4, which is about the same magnitude of the planet Venus in the morning or evening sky. A bolide is a special type of fireball which explodes in a bright terminal flash at its end, often with visible fragmentation.

Here is some of the footage so far
