I saw a lightening body in

I saw a lightening body in sky on 23/02/2017 at 7 am. I am from India. It looked like a falling star, orange colour, relatively less speed falling down on earth. It looked amazing. What was that exactly?

Orange light in east

2/22/17 went out to the car at 930 pm to go to car and noticed large bright orange solid light in the east sky went in to get hubby to show him and it was gone! I had stood and watched for a good one minute it did not move. Strange I'm in Albany Oregon. Anyone else see this

Orange light

Wondering if anyone else saw an orange light around 2200 Napier New Zealand tonight, was driving home when both myself and partner noticed an orange light hovering in the sky. Stopped the car and switched off so that i could take a photo (then noticed i didn't have my camera!). Thought it was a helicopter but there was no noise. It hovered moving very slowly and then headed west and faded out of site. I'm a private pilot and i track aircraft for flightradar24, i'm generally pretty aware of what aircraft are around - this was no "ordinary" aircraft - i need to know what it was!

Orange Light

I am the Partner of Dean Spurdle who witnessed the Orange Light in the night sky at approximately 10.00pm last evening. I am writing to confirm that what we saw was true and correct. There was no sound it just came across the night sky as an Orange Sphere . I actually mentioned to Dean that before we had left his home, I could smell a very dense smell of smoke. I mentioned this to Dean who remarked that he could not smell anything, however, it was I felt a very strong smell despite it being a very warm 22°Celsius evening. It certainly was no Aeroplane or Space Station. Dean has extensive knowledge and equipment and I hope somebody can verify the awesome experience we shared.

Orang elongated light

At approximately 10.00pm on 21st February, 2017, I witnessed a very fast elongated circle of orange rush past our property four miles from the City of Hereford in the UK. It was only visible for about a second.

Flashing light in night sky

Hi there, I just walked out my front door step approx 10 mins ago and saw a bright light flash 3 times in the sky then disappear, about 10 seconds or so later I saw what looked to be a much smaller light travelling just under where I saw the larger light flash. The smaller one looked much like how a Satellite in the night sky would look and traveled at a steady continuous speed fast but steady pace?

Extraordinary Objects in the sky

Hello, I'm from Kuwait. Today (2/19/2017) I've witnessed something extraordinary. I can't exactly confirm what I saw, but as I looked up in the distance at dawn, I viewed something like a blue bright light emitting as it surrounded 2 small dots that seemed to be very close to each other, moving as if they were tugging each other and moving uncontrollably. As this was happening, the blue bright light around them started to stretch and fluctuate for a considerable amount of time. Then, slowly, the light started to disappear while moving to the left along with the two dots (however, the 2 dots still appeared) - and as they kept on moving to the left, they eventually disappeared too. I could not find an explanation to what I have viewed at all, but this has left me in total shock and wonder.

19/02/17 at 10:04 While i

19/02/17 at 10:04 While i was about to get into my vehicle, i happened to glance at the sky admiring the stars when a smoke appeared than the firey ball. It was shiny and i thought to myself how beautiful it looked. Suddenly disappeared after seconds but i was so happy and felt relieved.

Bright Green Meteor like Object Falling From the Sky

Around 11:50 pm, from my backyard in Ontario, Canada, I witnessed a bright green quickly moving ball of light speeding across the sky, for approximately 2 seconds, until it disappeared from my sight. I wouldn't normally be alarmed seeing something of the sort as I've been lucky enough to witness many meteor showers and shooting stars in my lifetime, but this was considerably larger than any meteor I've even seen, and the massive, bright green glowing tail on it definitely spiked my interest (maybe because it reminded of something I'd seen watching Smallville or the Superman movies ). In all seriousness though, I'm really curious as to what the amazing spectical I just witnessed, was exactly.

Green ball

I was riding home with my kids tonight and saw the same thing. Beautiful, amazing and left me with questions. I have seen many shooting stars but this was bigger than any of those.

Green light

I saw the same thing on my way home with my boyfriend! It was my second time seeing this ball of green light here in the east mountains of New Mexico. The first one was the beginning of November though. I've been convinced it was a UFO lol I don't know much about meteors or the atmosphere so I didn't even occur to me that's what it could be hahah!

I also saw the same thing in

I also saw the same thing in Mississippi. It was really big and green. I tried to get my husband to turn around and see it but it was gone. It did seem to last longer than a normal meteror.

I saw this as well!!

I witnessed a green light falling from the sky at exactly 11:53pm from driving along Hwy 404, and was so curious as to what it was and a quick google search led me to your comment. Thanks for confirming what it was!! What a strange sight it was.

Feb 17th 2017

Green light inlay sunrise

I was traveling north on Hwy 83 in Zapata County TX about 25 miles north of Zapata TX on February 17, 2017 and was about 7:10AM. I just saw a bright green ball falling from the sky. Before it made landing the light broke into two balls then disappeared. From the pictures on the web, the light is just like that. Only that it wasn't dark.

Massive White light with green tail

I am from Antigua, West Indies. Just 15 minutes ago, I saw a massive white/yellow ball falling from the sky in an easterly direction with a very wide long bright neon green trail behind it! I have seen many shooting stars and this was so much more impressive and bigger than a regular shooting star. Particularly the long greenish trail. What was that???

Shooting Star

Aprox 9.20pm 14 Feb. X

Falling lights

Hi Im from Mongolia. And uhmm, it was like around 8-10 (im 18 now) years ago but i remember it pretty clear in my head. My grandparents used to stay in countryside in summer. I don't remember the exact date but i remember what i saw. it must've been around like 7-8pm and pretty cloudy and it was thundering above (not sure if there was any lightning or not). And i was hanging with my siblings from the fence that used to hold the mammals. And when looked to the sky, there was couple light spots pretty much like stars or airplane lights, but it was cloudy enough to shed off the stars from my sight. And airplanes never fly around like that. First it was 2 then more and more came out ( 4 or 5 of total). and they were going down like falling right at the exact same time. And then going back up again. This THING took around like few minutes, What is strange is, none of my other siblings saw what i saw. I told my parents about this phenomena, but they didn't give so much attention. Btw im not kinda into an argument, It just came into my head like couple minutes ago.

Last night, 2-11-17, around

Last night, 2-11-17, around midnight or perhaps a little after I was staring out my window at a star and chatting on the phone. All of a sudden, so fast I almost couldn't process it was happening, a bright light blue-ish green fiery orb fell from the sky (it appeared as if it fell out of the star) and disappeared behind the horizon very quickly. The whole occurrence probably lasted 2-3seconds. Wow! I am still in awe that I just so happened to be staring at the sky at the precise moment the fiery orb fell. I am from Montana, USA.

Saw something similar here in Kissimmee, Florida at 2:45 a.m

I too saw a glowing white object falling through the sky very late last night. And what I saw also burst into a ball of bright green light and then burnt itself out before hitting the ground. This took place about 2:45 a.m. in Kissimmee, Florida while I was looking towards the east.

I also saw a blueish green

I also saw a blueish green fiery orb falling from the sky around midnight or 1am, Montana time!! It was moving so quickly I though I had hallucinated it.

green orb falling

Feb. 8, 2017, Southern California just north of Ontario International Airport early in evening. Saw bright emerald green orb arcing about 45 degrees above southern horizon traveling east to west, then extinguished. Very visible despite haze and travelling amazingly slowly. No visible tail or halo. A first for me. Gee whiz!
