A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon

For once, it happened in the middle of the field of view of a fireball camera. Admittedly, a thin cloud curtain slightly in front. The video lasts 4.76 seconds. The UFO software gave a brightness of -5.2 magnitude but the brightness was probably closer to full moon. I haven’t really learned to rely on UFOAnalyzer magnitude estimates. This apparently belonged to the northern taurids that came surprisingly down into the atmosphere.
