On January 17, 2009, a bright fireball was photographed near the horizon from Oostkapelle, the Netherlands. At the same time, a video was obtained from the fireball closer to the point of impact. Later, several fragments of a carbonaceous chondrite were claimed to have been recovered by Thomas Grau of Germany. Here we report on the trajectory and orbit of the fireball as determined from the records to date.
