Bright beautiful meteor with an ion and smoke trail that went on for 9 minutes until gone with only the first 6 x 20 sec shown here. This fireball lines up with the Aurigid meteor radiant but that shower supposedly ended two days prior, it may well be a tardy member. Best fireball I have captured this year, and from a less known meteor shower.
