Photograph of the widely observed bolide/fireball which exploded over South Wales on 27/08/12 at around 23:13 pm. As an indication of the brightness of the object, the nearly full moon is lurking behind the clouds in the lower right of the image. The fireball was noted as blue/green colour by many observers- this can clearly be seen in the photo.
