Light in sky

I just saw what looked like a travelling star above the Edwalton area of Nottingham that suddenly went really bright then went back to normal carried on travelling but went out of sight??

Meteòr

Whangarei, northland, new zealand 27/03/17 3:15am this morning and looked up into the starry sky and watched what i think was a meteor falling down in the star lit sky. It started off like a silver shooting star for a short distance then traveled quite a long distance as a fiery flame.

Blue flying object above forth road bridge

My friends have seen a hige blue light the aize of a house above the forth road bridge in scotland it has happened 2 days in a row also with what sounds like trumpet noices coming from the sky

Blue flash accross sky....west of Scotland

West Scotland blue flash accross the sky never seen anything so fast in the sky, then disappeared? Thought it was a plane when I 1st glanced up and seen it but way too fast shot accross the sky and disappeared in seconds.

Blue Flash

Hiya, We saw a very similar sounding think, just over the border near Jedburgh tonight around 8.30-9ish Blue/Green light, no tail, shot across sky east to west then vanished..... Where in Scotland did you see it? What direction did it go? We thought it may have been a satellite, but seemed much too fast and the wrong colour.

metor - i guess?

Wilmington, Vermont - night sky march 17 or there about. I was using my telescope observing bright planet or star in the Northeast sky was probably around 9:30 10:00 pm. At one point there appeared to be very along straight line below the star. like something a jet might leave behind - but it was way above any height a jet could fly. It - seemed to appear from now where. As I watched this line it seemed to be moving and changing shape as I continued to watch it for at least a good hour - the line was no longer straight and I could see a fiery ball at the end. it seemed to be moving diagonally up and away. I could see the fiery ball or balls at the end of this stream moving at what seemed to be up and way in a jiggered fiery climbing roll. I must have watched for over an hour.

blue flash in sky

Queenstown New Zealand 24/03/2017 around 11pm, saw a blue light like a star then a flash which grew bigger then gone, like a star was exploding, mate who I was with also seen it

White Light

Live in La Mirada, CA - 15 mins away from Disneyland / Anaheim to give you an idea of our location. My kids and I were driving home from dinner tonight (March 24, 2017) around 9:30 pm when we noticed a very bright white light shooting across the sky. The light didn't shoot directly across the sky, more of like an arch. I am presuming it was shooting star, but I don't know much about this so not sure if this type of pattern is considered normal. I was joking around with my kids that if we hear a knock on the door shortly after we get home that it could be the "men in black."

Exactly happened like that

Exactly happened like that but few hours before around 7 pm in India. I thought that it was a UFO or something unusual.

Green light falling from sky.

Green light falling from sky...observed while driving down Rio Saldo towards tempe marketplace March 22 at 730 pm.

Green light

Around 4:50 A.M. 3/23/2017 Gillette, Wyoming. Saw a bright green light falling and had a significant trail of sparks behind it. I can't say that it was a fireball, and it wasn't glowing. But it was a bright green light, not sparkling or anything. It looked like a shot off of a Roman candle firework.

Around 8:30 p.m. (Mountain

Around 8:30 p.m. (Mountain time) in El Paso, Texas my boyfriend and I were in the car driving and all of a sudden he pointed out a meteor falling from the sky (northwest direction) it was a blue-green color at first then changed to white as it got closer and then the color faded alltogether

Bright green arc

This morning at 5:50 am near Haxtun Co. I saw a really bright white light in the sky that suddenly arc'd up and then down disappearing in a green trail. I was looking Northwest of where I live.

Green Fireball 3/23/2017

I am from the Piedmont region of South Carolina in the United States. While driving, my dad and I saw a green streak go straight down. It did not make a noise or anything. I witnessed another one minutes after. It was very unusual because it went in a straight parallel line, and did not disappear. We saw it go straight into the ground, but it was a few miles away and a hill covered where it landed. We looked up to see if there are any meteor showers coming up, and we came up with nothing.

Just saw a bright light go

Just saw a bright light go across the sky.. like a meteor/ shooting star but much closer/ brighter. I'm in uk & this was in the western sky at around 12.10 am

Fiery object seen above Auckland

Tonight at about 10:30 i saw a fiery object above Auckland ,it was not a star or a plane,perhaps a meteor ?It was there for Nearly a minute

Fiery object

We too saw this amazing fiery object. It slowly came towards us, passed over our heads it was amazing to see, we were so taken with trying to figure out what it could be we didn't think to try and photograph it. We were watching from Waikumete Hill in West Auckland and watched it until it disappeared over towards the Auckland City. It was slow moving as it passed over and no sound came from it. I have been looking online to try and find somebody else that must have seen it, it was so large and amazing to big and slow to miss.

Lebanon Pennsylvania

I was standing out side long up at the sky. I saw what appeared to be a falling star. It was a easy bright light with a bright orange streak behind it. At approximately 8:30pm.

Falling star

I saw one over Manchester, Md about 8:35 pm on March 21, 2017. Very bright white with some red and possibly green. Going more or less east to west.

Green Light in Sky

I was driving in Toronto, Canada, when I looked up and noticed a very fast moving green light around 8:40pm Central time (GMT -5). It was travelling in a southerly direction, appearing like something falling from the sky. It quickly disappeared on the horizon. I personally wouldn't refer to it as a shooting star as it didn't exhibit a 'tail', so it was likely a meteor. But I must admit that the thought of a man-made object crossed my mind at first....ufo?

So I sort of thought I saw

So I sort of thought I saw the same thing, the green light I saw was also heading south, but I saw mine much earlier, at 4:50 am, and further south than you as I am in wyoming in the US. And, I guess my sighting had a shower of sparks behind it. Ok, so maybe not the exact same thing. But definitely heading south, and definitely thought I should mention it

Green meteor

Large green mentor streaking through southern sky from east to west about 1245 am 3/22/2017. Near Kansas City, MO viewing from the city of Lee's Summit.

Green Streak in the sky 3/21/17

Was driving North bound route 5 Southern MD. 6min short of hitting I-95S .. I was driving and seen a Green streak of light to the top right about a good distance off.... It went from the top right in a doward fall to the left then out of site

Green Metor

I witnessed something similar on the same night, but earlier on. Some differences exist, however. First, the one I saw was moving from north to south...so can a meteor change direction like that? Also, the time seems to be much later than it should be which might indicate that it slowed down? Now I'm wondering if this was a man-made object rather than a meteor...just some food for thought?

Bright green thing

Saw a very bright ball with a white tail fall out of the sky I was so amazed I didn't know what it was I was so confused but I'm glad I have witnessed this! I literally turned over opened my eyes and it was there for a second then gone!

I was traveling 78 W toward PA I was close to Clinton NJ at the time and I saw it . It lasted about a second if that and I was looking around to see if anyone noticed or if it may cause an accident and nothing happened. Then I was second guessing if I even saw something. I'm so happy I'm not the only one. What was it?

The fast green light

I saw this about between 0830 and 920pm or so in Baltimore. Was second guessing myself but it was fast moving at an angle downward slightly.

Small bluish greenish light fell from above

It was a small bluish greenish white-ish light that appeared out of no where somewhat falling and kinda appeared out of nowhere, i swear i didnt blink, im usually looking out at the sky almost every single night so im used to leaving my eyes open for a long period of time. Well i saw that light and i got excited, i got scared, idk what that was? i was thinking maybe alien, but ive seen what ufo's are like they are more bluish or more whitish cause they reflect light at that level. but yeah here in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, i just saw that maybe around 8:57 or :58 pm. i stayed looking around to see something else to be sure of what i saw and no luck. nada. nothing else was in the sky as of right now that im here typing on this website. Thank you for letting me comment this event lol i feel a little better, knowing im not going crazy or whatever. thanks and good luck everyone on planet earth, a.k.a our home. peace. :)

Meteor/fireball over E.WA.

Just saw a green fireball moving east to west over the Pullman, WA. Area at 1:30am on March 20th 2017. I was watching tv and heard a series of muffled bangs or thuds from outside and I couldn't tell which direction the noises were coming from so I looked out my window and spotted a large bright brilliant green meteor with a long tail moving across the sky over my apartment. It was north of Pullman out towards Albion WA. Did anyone else see it? And yes the faint noises were from it passing over.
