Fireball forward scatter recording from 20th February 2005

There were numerous reports of a daylight fireball at 09:55:20 UT on 20th February, 2005 (solar longitude 331.798) from England and Wales.

The first chart shows the flux recorded by my radio forward scatter system on the 20th February 2005. The flux provides indication of the signal strength received. The large increase shortly at approximately 10:00 will be due to the fireball.

The chart below shows the flux readings for the hour from 09:30 UT to 10:30 UT.


It seems certain that the clear and distinct signal is associated with the major fireball event witness across England and Wales.
