Meteor 03/07/15 @ 7.00am(ish)

Walking down Wairau Rd, looking east, directly above Rangitoto I saw a meteor steak across the sky. Burnt out within about 3-5 seconds. Pretty impressive to watch.

Beautiful meteor this morning in the dawn sky falling to the north 7am. Saw it from Awhitu peninsula just leaving for work.

Very bright and noticable. Definitely had a small trail, lasted only a few seconds.

Lights in the sky this morning

I saw this this morning to, I was coming into to town on the Nor Western Motorway, I was under the new waterview bridge looking toward town, but yes a bright almost fireball looking light with a tail. Looked it was going stright down then disappeared! It was amazing, I cant seem to find any articles relating to this though? Wish I could, first time I've seen anything like it!

7am sighting Auckland

I too saw this one, was looking from massey towards the city and saw a bright greeny yellow light moving at speed towards the horizon, watched it for a couple of seconds before it burnt out. Very bright but not moving as fast as I would expect.

Two bright lights

we saw the same thing over Red Beach in north Auckland last night about 6.45, two bright lights one above the other. The top one was brighter they disappeared then came back. They didn't appear to be that high in the sky? It seemed quite unusual.

Two bright lights

Saw them from East Street, central Auckland.

HUGE UFO

At 5:15am 3/07/2015 in whangaparaoa new zealand a massive rectangle shaped ufo drifted overhead. Thought it was a plane at first

But it was the size of 3 airbus planes and flying lower than the police helicopter without any sound but lots of lights.

It was heading towards auckland and as soon as it past the

Whangaparaoa mall it just vanished. It would not show up on 

My camera but by comparison it was like looking at a van from 20 feet. Clear sky's and silent. If anyone caught it on 

Camera please email me sjsmithtwin@hotmail.com.

Eyes on the sky on the 10th of this month

from over two years of report studies I have found that 60 percent of ufo sighting within N.Z happen on the 10th day of each month. 

July holds the most accounted reports,  I have a feeling that you will all remember this post. 

orange lights in the sky

My buddie and myself at his house in east end hamilton ontario canada tonight witnessed 4 orange glowing lights in the sky over 20 minutes. One hovered in the northwest sky and then dropped into the horizon. The next about 3 minutes later from the same location hovered turned south east an picked up speed. Over our heads it went faster and sped towared the full moon towards Niagara. The third came from the north rapidly went south, turned east towards the moon and stopped glowing as it went over our heads. We could see the black silhouette racing at even higher speed towards the moon over Niagara. I looked like a huge airplane with no lights. The fourth one came from the north east in the distance and sped towards the moon fully glowing. They turned and hovered like no metorite could. I even thought it could have been burning embers from fireworks since it is canada day but it just didnt add up. too bright, too much change in direction, too much speed change, too freaky. Anyone else catch tis?

Red light - UK

Just seen a red light /ball in the sky , seems very distant . Unsure what this is , but was noticable in the sky . It was there for about 15 minutes and now i can't see it , this could be due to the clouds. I hope it's nothing major.

Lights

Bracken Ridge, Brisbane, Qld, Australia.

2 bright lights in the sky, one seems to be larger and brighter than the other. I am only 15km from the Airport and it doesnt seem like the planes are flying much lower coming in.

 

Bright Lights in the night sky.

Two bright lights are presently suspended in the sky to the north west of our home.  We note the we also have a bright, visible full moon in the East also.  We are curious as to what these are.  The lights appear to be close to each other with one larger than the other.  These same lights were visitible to us last night.  They appear to be hovering not moving.  Can someone identify what this phenomena is?

Its called a conjunction - Its Venus and Jupiter.

Remained in the sky for atleast 45 mins until it became shrouded by clouds.

Location when seen; West Auckland, Object seen North.

Time; 830pm

 

I saw this too!  

I saw this too!

 

Two Lights over West Auckland

Yeah, I saw the same two bright lights (one big, one small) near each other just now (about 8:00pm, 01/07/2015) and twice yesterday evening (about 6:00pm and at 7:00pm). I've never seen them before, and I would have definitely remembered them as they are quite distinctive due to their position (rather low on the horizon) and brightness. Also, there are no other stars in the sky as it is very cloudy, or very few dim ones only. Seen in West Auckland, West Harbour both times. They do not appear to have moved since I saw them yesterday.

2 moving things in sky during day not plains

I see this to whilst out during day time hours in the UK 

I have spotted the same thing

I live in Tikipunga, Whangarei, and I saw this a few nights ago and I can see it again now (6pm) - a bright light with a smaller star by its side.  My son just saw a light fly off to the left of it.

I would love to know what this is....anyone?

Green explosion

after 11pm I seen flickering light towards East Manchester in the distance that I see regular but not every night. Whether it is planes is debatable. like usual I was staring following the light that usually glides down, to my surprise it stopped lit up green went backward kind of turned then got brighter. This was an il luminous green explosion that I cannot put into correct words. Looking like a big splash of paint then then shrunk and went back to its usual flashing lights in the distance and faded out. I'm from the UK in the Manchester area. I would appreciate it if anybody could find out what this was. It occurred on 29th June around 11pm 2015.

I witnessed a moving star on 30th June 2015

I have seen too at around 5:00AM from India. I could not be able to sleep properly on that day due to masquitos. I was just watching sky. One star was moving slowly and got exploded..moving fast for a while and slowly disappeared. I thought there was a rocket in the sky which might have started its journey.

Meteor in sky last night.

I live on the west coast of Florida, St. Petersburg Beach. At about 0100 to 0130 Hours on 06-29-2015 I saw a slow moving object moving across the sky, it came out of the west and was moving in a North\North East direction. It appeared to break apart and the tail length doubled in size. Watched for about 30 to 40 seconds til my view was obstructed by tall buildings. Did anybody else report seeing what I saw?

Flying object June 29th at 1:30am

I was sitting on my front porch at 1:30 a.m. On June 29, 2015 and out of the right corner of my eye I seen this big white spot so I turn to look and it look like it could have been a big asteroid unfortunately I don't think they start behind trees, if it was an asteroid  it would have fell straight from the sky but it didn't  and it did not break up it stayed in one big piece it was moving very slowly flew right past my front porch a big round white flood light was pointed right at me and it continued to fly by very slowly it disappeared to the left behind some trees and I would say this sucker was huge I've never seen anything like it in my entire life there was no sound and move very slowly I would say it was in my site for a good 3 minutes. 

Large meteorite/fireball/space debris

Approximately 1:30 am saw huge light come across the sky breaking into pieces but following the same rough pattern . No noise bright white in color.

blue light in sky

Seen tonight at 5.45pm in Tamar Valley Tasmania. Very bright almost neon blue ball falling in a north easterly direction. Lasted for about 20-25 seconds before disappearing behind the hills. With the naked eye it was about the size and brightness of a car headlight on full beam from a distance of about 500 metres. Not travelling in a straight line but an arc.
