Below is an image of a fireball recorded by Ian McAdam (Hampshire, UK) on the night of 20th November 2005. Here's how Ian describes the night's sequence of events - 'In the early  hours of Nov 20th, a fireball streaks from north to south direction ( looking east). Saturn then appears from behind a chimney & that is followed by a shooting star'.

Still image of part of the event.

Animated GIF of the event. The sequence of animated GIF images do not represent the actual speed of the event. They are most likely about 1/3 the original speed.

It is possible that this event is related to one of the radio meteor echoes recorded on this night.
