At 23:50:39UTC 2015-08-12 a bright bolide appeared in Scandinavia. Not
a Perseid, but observed by many Perseid observers. It lasted 9 seconds,
bright as the full moon for about 6 seconds and peaked around -14 at 100
km distance.

It fragmented into two groups and faded in a spray. Green and yellow
colour. A preliminary analysis gives: Incidence about 22 degrees.
Terminal height about 30 km. Average speed about 17 km/s.
