Green ufo

On wed. Feb 10 driving to work on the 15 south headed toward jean Nevada, me and a couple of friends saw this unique green falling something. It was bright out already and the time was about 6:30ish am. From Las Vegas and I have never seen a green shooting star before, was awesome to witness that. 

Shooting Star or Mereor

At 9:15 pm sae a bright bluish light traveling east to west and fadding over the Pacific Ocean.  It lasted a few seconds.  I liver on the Northern California Coast.

Light in sky

I was traveling southbound on the 14 freeway in southern California when I saw a white light with green streaking tail traveling west across the sky. It dissipated right above Acton, CA. It was beautiful

Light in the sky

I saw it too! I thought I was loosing it! I tried to get a picture but it was gone before I could get one! It was a beautiful green color! Port Hueneme California

What was that this morning?!

I saw the same thing everyone on here saw, between 6:30-6:40 this morning in Camarillo, something came shooting down from the sky with a green light tail!  It happened so fast, I didn't have time to get a picture, let alone coherent enough to actually second guess myself as to whether I really did see what I had just saw?!

Green light

I live in Van Nuys.Was around 6:39 this morning I was driving on Hazeltine  str.,had to make a left to the Victory and stopped under red light.I saw how the burning green light going down from West to East,was so close and scary

Massive Bright Falling Object

On Hwy 14 southbound right past Rosamond Blvd exit, at 6:36am, a Massively huge white ball shape object fallowed by a trail of bright green, yellow and white lights went gliding across the skyline (from my location) what would look like over the Los Angles area. It literally was the biggest, most brightest stretch of anything falling in our sky that I have ever witnessed in all my life as Mojave Desert So. Cal. Resident. 

Taking into consideration the time, it was already very much daylight with clear blue sunny California sky, it clearly glowed bright with each color as it sailed such along distance, lasting a good solid 10-12 seconds Forsure!! It lasted so long and such a distance it almost seemed as if it was going to hit ground before fading out into nothing, defiantly the most totally awesome sight to start another blessed day with.  

Maybe a comet

I went outside last night and saw something that was greenish-yellow with a red tail. It looked too large to be a falling star, and I have never noticed a color with a falling star. It was close to 10pm on 2/10/16. I thought it might be a comet. This was in Piedmont, AL.

Bright Blue/Green Light Temecula

At about 6:40 this morning I saw a very beatiful bright blue green flash horizontally for about 1/8 of a mile in the sky to the left of the top of the mountain, i was coming down Deer Hollow Rd facing SW about to make a left turn onto Pala Road from the Great Oaks HS.

Green Meteor

As I drank coffee out on my deck this morning, just above Oak View, CA, I witnessed a vivid green meteor streaking across the lower sky! It appeared, from my vantage point, to be above Ventura. The meteor quickly disappeared from sight. It was traveling eastward from a SE position. And the time was approximately 7:40 AM.

Bright green streak across morning sky in temecula CA

While on my way to work in the morning around 6:23 am in Temecula, Ca I saw a bright green streak go across the sky, which lasted about 5 seconds and then disappeared. Now remind you, around this time it was light out and extremely visable. Not sure what it was but it was very mesmerizing. My first reaction was " omg what the f**K is that! Holy Sh**t!! Not sure what it was but would love to know!! 

green light in morning sky

I live in Garden Grove, CA (so cal) on the way to work going south towards the beach, I saw a green streak going through the sky going from west to east (aprox 6:35 AM). I got to see it for about 5 seconds and then it just dissapeared. But it was a bright green and it was moving fast...slower than a shooting star. I can't find anything to confirm other than a call on a radio station saying he saw what I saw and wanted to know what happend to it.  He couldn't see were it went because of where he was the hills blocked his view.

Bright green streak, pre-dawn (light but sun still below horizon) 6:39AM PST, low in southern sky, moving very fast apparently from west toward east. Largest "meteor" type object I have ever seen. Low, seemingly horizontal line of travel. I think the sun's light was probably hitting it. I am on coast between San Diego and L.A.

Scotland 10-2-16

At around 17.45 - 17.55 I was outside star gazing with a group of Beaver Scouts in Perthshire, Scotland. We were concentrating hard as it wasn't fully dark yet, however you could see a good number of stars. Then suddenly a very bright star shine from nowhere and seemed to fall slowly but got fainter and fainter. Both myself and the other adult knew it wasn't a shooting star, satellite or plane etc, but we were at a lost to what it actually was!! 

 

Perfect night for star gazing id say :) X

huge white light travelling across sky, tetbury, glos,england

i have just seen a massive white/yellow light travelling across the sky .. i thought it may be a plane, but it was going too fast and there were no other lights flashing... i thought it may be a satellite but having seen them in the past this was just too big... it is a starlit night no clouds at all and as i watched it it seemed to just fade into a small red dot and disappear.. it was very strange.

Shootig star?

10:55pm tonight 10th Feb'16 I saw a bright green/white light/ball shoot acroos the sky from way above me travelling to the north  (possibly NNW) in a direct line. Took about half a second and went over and beyond some low white clouds..

I have no idea what it was but i saw it.

I live in Hillmorton, SW chch.

Meteor Spotted from Wellington

Was outside just before 11pm tonight(10/02/2016) and looked up to see a HUGE raindrop shaped bright light falling, from east to west, above the horizon. The back part had a green glow and it was visible and seemed to fall very slowly, for approx 4-5 seconds. I actually yelled out the 'F' word to my wife, as I've seen hundreds of shooting stars and this seemed larger than all of them put together!! Heaps of ppl MUST have seen this as well, surely??!! Jac

This is unexplainable and i know that there is going to be lot of people reading this thing i must be crazy, my cell phone was dead in battery so i could not video or take picture, but if someone saw something please post so i could make sure that i was not  the only one that saw this. I live in homestead florida.

Meteor over Christchurch

About 10.52 pm saw a very bright white greenish meteor travelling NNW from high above down to horizon over Christchurch. Spectacular As a clear starry night.

Shooting Star

About 9pm on Tuesday, 9th February 2015 EST I saw what I believe was a meteor entering the atmosphere from east to west. It was a bright flare-like streak with a greenish tinge to the meteor. It burnt out before it touched the ground. The journey lasted onlt about three or four seconds.

I am from the South East corner of Queensland, Australia.

Meteor sighting

I saw the same meteor, around 11pm in the Canterbury region on the South Island of New Zealand.  Large fire ball, with a bright blue-green color, following the path of the Milky Way across the sky from southeast to northwest.  I'm in  high country with a clear sky and no light pollution, it was very bright and highly visible.

Bright streak that faded and disapeared suddenly

I was in Courteny on Vancouver Island (Canada) and I saw the same thing around 6pm. Apparently my boyfriend who was up island in Chemanious saw it too.

 

Bright streak through the sky - B.C., Canada.

I'm in the South Shuswap, B.C, Canada and saw the same thing shortly after 6:00p.m. PST on Feb 09. 2016. Very big and bright, heading east to west with some kind of trail behind (smoke or debris?). Can find no info locally or  on the news. I've never seen anything like it and I'm an avid stargazer. Strange!

Comet flying through the sky

Tonight while driving home 8/2/16 i saw what looked like a ball of fire in the sky off in the distance, slowing moving further out of my vision. I could see it faintly flickering so it looked like fire definitely. Watched it driving for about 10-15 minutes before it was out of my view. Looked up pictures of comets and it matches my description! I live in Melbourne, Australia
