Astronomy in Yorkshire # 13 April 22nd 1903 Another Bright Meteor Seen Over Huddersfield


Another Bright Meteor Seen Over Huddersfield

On April 22nd 1903 Mr C L Brook at Meltham near Huddersfield, saw a greenish fireball which lasted for 3 seconds. It exploded twice like a flash of lightning.

The fireball seemed to explode at about delta Cepheus and to have been directed towards alpha Cepheus.

After falling for about 6 or 7 degrees it burst out again with a beautiful greenish light and exploded into a sort of nebulous halo.
