Thanks for that, Phillip.

Apologies to all for omitting the time of the daylight fireball over
Scotland on the morning of September 23. This occurred at about 08:55
local time (BST), which is 07:55 UTC.

Since my initial posting, I have discussed the event with the officer in
the Ministry of Defence who originated the Cosmos 2343 connection but
was unaware of some of the details that we had gathered in Edinburgh. We
are now both agreed that the meteor theory is more likely to be correct.
