We have just seen a similar

We have just seen a similar thing. Two lights 45 degrees NE. moving in the same way:)

meteor?

I just saw a bright light above our house near Winton in Southland New Zealand, at 10:29pm it was a bright yellow orange, and had a long tail which glowed for a few seconds.. Far to bright to be a shooting star, maybe it could be a meteor?

Fireball in sky seen from Florida on 11/28/2010 @ 2:10am

I just found this site because i was searching to see if anyone else saw what I saw early this morning. I just happened to look up and caught something streaking across the sky. It had a long trail mostly orange(ish) and what looked like sparks and peices of fire. An object lead the way which looked twice the size of the trail in circumfrance and was very bright maybe orange/white/blueish. The thing is, it's movement was parallel to the horizon (left to right) Not from top to bottom, and did not appear to be moving much faster than a plane would be. The trail was pretty long and there was a very bright flash of blue/white then it was gone. It looked exactly like a plane exploding. It appeared to be out over the gulf of Mexico. From my location (Parrish, FL. United States; south of Tampa) it was at 215 degrees S.W. with an elevation of approximately 40 degrees. I have NEVER seen anything like it in 36 years and I watch the night sky almost every night. I have seen meteors and shooting stars. They move extremely fast. This (thing) did not. I was just hoping that somebody, somewhere, saw it too. Well, happy sky watching.

fireball in the sky seen 11-30-10 miami fl

I am glad to see that I am not going crazy I also saw a fire ball with with a tail falling from the sky today as I was driving home from work it was around 5:39pm do you think this has anything to do with planet x? I took pictures from my mobile and you can see it clearly

Fireball

Five of us saw the exact same fireball you describe around 6.45pm while we were walking in the snow. We are in North West Ireland. I don't know much about meteors or shooting stars but just thought what I saw last night was amazing. Wonder what it was?

fireball

Hi there
I have been searching all evening for someone to ask about the fireball i saw this evening in connemara, galway, ireland. I was driving home from xmas shopping and had to stop in the middle of the road for a few moments as i was so shocked at what i saw. It was a large orange light wiht a long tail of fire from it. It glided across the sky for a minute or so and then just burnt out eventually. It was frightening at first as i thought it was an aeroplane but then realised it was probably a metorite. I picked up my phone to call someone but had no credit unfortunately to ring anyone and anyway it had happened so quick that it was over before i could take a video or photo on my phone. it was amazing and I will never forget it.

red lights over upper hutt

One of my sons friends came to my front door, as I was chatting to her I saw two very bright red lights in the sky, I said look at that, she turned and said do you see them too, she had seen three and she thought she was just seeing things, but when I said I saw them too we watched them for about 5 mins. At first we thought they may have been a couple of helicopters but they appeared to travel very close to each other, and they just hovered going up and down slightly, as they traveled up they got dimmer and then just faded out. We thought that they had gone, when I looked up and said, there's another one, and it did the same thing. This all happened about 10.30 - 11pm on Saturday night 27/11/2010.

i saw exactly the same thing in gisborne 28.11.10 @ 10.00pm

What you saw was exactly what i saw last night but they wernt red they were an orange/red looking colour, there were two of them following each other moving quite slow then about 5 minutes later they started getting smaller and smaller then dissapeared.

orange/green lights in sky near stansted airport, england

Hi
Weird to see other people with similar names to mine. Anyway, I saw an orange/gold light descend near South Mimms, just outside of NWLondon at about 3-30am this morning (27th November 2010), British Time. After that, driving to Stansted Airport, in England, at about 4.24am, I saw like an orange/green flash at about ground level and up, kind of like lightning (if I could draw it, I would) green to the left, attached to orange to the right light up from the ground (and then i saw clouds coming from it, so I thought there might have been a plane crash (as it was near Stansted Airport!) but then thought what I was witnessing was indeed the Northern Lights, although at ground level. Weird, or wot!

Object behind moon

Hey there,

I have seen something odd behind the moon on the 23rd November 2010. There are photos here to see in my flickr account open to anyone who wants to view them.

I am 100% sure it is not dust I am so fussy with cleaning my camera lense...No dust or streak gets past me unseen. And the photo was taken through an open ranch slider door so it is not a reflection on the glass.

I saw these too in New Zealand

Hi there, I saw these same kind of things about 11.45pm on the 11/12/10 in Tauranga, New Zealand. I was just googling around to check if any other reports were made about this same thing, and there was one newspaper report from about 4 1/2 hours drive from my house.

Fast moving light

Last night at about 5.30 in the morning i saw a bright light similar to a star but it couldnt have been because it was moving up and down, side to side and then zoomed off. its not the first time i have seen this happen, anybody else seen this?

Two bright orange lights

Green ball of light

On 24th November, 2010 At approx 9am Australian Daylight saving time. Location: Lismore NSW, Australia, I saw a bright green ball of light fall from the sky. Just wondering what it could be. I phoned our local police a few minutes after the sighting at that time there was no other reports. Thanks

WOOW! I saw an amazing green

WOOW! I saw an amazing green light that got closer as it moved along, but then it got blue and went faster leaving a short bright blue tail behind, but what was real weird is that as it closer and blue it made a loud THUD and as it went faster (leaving a short tail) IT MADE A LOUD ROAR...I was amazed.
By the way that was around 12:15 GMT in Alexandria, Egypt
Like it was visiting the Pyramids, AMAZING

I was out on the basketball court in my friends neiborhood tonight like 4 hours ago. A orange looking ball was slowly moving across the sky. Me and some guy i was playing basketball with saw it. We watched it for like 10 seconds. Then it went behind a cloud in i didint see it after that. I was not hi drunk or anything. I promise i saw it. has anybody seen this? it looks like a small slow moving circle in the night sky. i got on google in typed in what i saw in now i see theres way more people seeing this crazy stuff. It kind of scares me honestly cause i have no clue what i saw and never saw anything like it. it was not a shooting star im sure of that 100%. i have good eyes im only 18.

I saw these too! Round about 9pm, 3 orange lights moving slowly over west auckland, then disappeared into the distance. WTF??

bright light shoots across the sky

Southern California 11/16/2010 at 4:43 A.M., while heading west on the freeway I noticed a very bright light in the sky. I thought it was a helicopter and thought maybe there was a car accident. It was the brightest thing in the sky and that is why it caught my eye. All of a sudden it streaked in a western diraction and then just disappeared. It didn't fade just disappeared. Did anyone else see this?

bright, fast moving white light with a tail, thought

I saw what you saw but late thanksgiving night or you can say very early morning fri around 3:00am was moving to fast to be a plane or a helicopter and was VERY VERY Bright white light , watched it for about 10 sec and then poof it was gone, to close to have been a meteor or falling star because if thats what it was it would of hit the ground at that speed and from the distance off the ground it was, it was like as high as you would see a helicopter fly

Lights on the sky

Nov. 14 of 2010 PORTUGAL
At 06h21 i (a 19 year old guy) was in my balcony in my Flat smoking a cigar when i looked up in the sky and i saw what seemed to be stars moving in a very very slow speed...but they were moving, i called waked my parents so they could see it as well, they did, it was weird... i tryed to record it but not even my Samsung Wave 5.0mp camera can record the "moving stars"

I also saw on Nov. 22, 2010

I also saw on Nov. 22, 2010 moving stars. Hundreds, possibly thousands of them. They were soundless, maintained a constant , not blinking light. My brother-in-law also saw them. I was and am mistified! What was it?

Orange ball of light in NJ

Hello. Last night (Nov. 10) at approximately 8:40 PM, my husband and I witnessed what we believe to be a meteorite or something similar in Hillsborough, NJ. It was orangish in color, with a long orange tail. It went accross the sky in a straight line heading NE, and we never saw it burn out..it went a really long distance. We wound up losing sight of it over the trees. Did anyone else see anything??

Orange ball of light!

Hi,I saw the same thing.I live in the Denville area of New jersey. Was out in the yard with our dogs around 8:30 PM and saw orange ball shaped object with a trail of orange behind it. It was not quick like a shooting star but rather slow moving and heading northwest. Watched it for about 10 seconds before it disappeared behind a mountain. I'm glad someone else spotted it as well.

white flashes in the sky last night.

firstly i want to make it clear that i wasnt drunk or under any influence at all.

i was lying in bed after work last night, and saw out of my window a series of 2 white flashes, that lit up the sky. this happened on more than one occasion and i would love to know if anyone else saw this or had any explanation for this? in addition to the flashes, there was no thunder claps, and my laptop screen, tv and multi-socket connector went wild. the screen on my laptop kept pulsing black and in lines, my tv stopped working completely and my multi socket started to make a 'clicking' noise that iv never heard it do before - all of the technology has never had any problems prior to this, and are working as normal again today.

the flashes were over durham, in the north east of the uk.

if anyone can help explain this please get in touch - kris_dixon_14@hotmail.co.uk

thanks

meteor?

I saw a bright ball of light with a trail over Southern California. It appeared to be heading north to south. Nov. 8, 2010, around 10:30 pm.

re: possible meteor sighting

The description sounds much more like a meteor than a re-entering satellite. Satellite decays tend to be less rapid than seems to be described here.There appears to be nothing expected to decay at about that time as far as is known.
It would be helpful to know if possible the constellation from which the meteor appeared to come.

lights in the sky

These sightings are all too common to not be part of a planned conspiracy. We must look at what they are trying to distract us from, the aliens will eventually get their way and get us all anyway. Nothing to be worried about.......it's only going to be a big bang anyway...could be a bit hot though. I'm sure thier aim will improve, so stay inside at night when these things seem to happen. Also suggest you stay of drugs and see if they stop.

Fast moving, exploding object

3.11.10 approximately 0145 while flying between Christchurch and Palmerston North a very fast object moving in low trajectory seen heading west to east. As it passed to the east of us there was a huge ball of flame then object continued on as it appeared to us earlier when about 7-8 seconds later another huge ball of flame before it disappeared. Another smaller object could be seen following a short distance behind. Possible satellite / debris re-entering atmosphere ?????

Red shooting 'something'

approximately 1:45am 02/11/10, Titahi Bay, Porirua, New Zealand. Three of us are standing outside having a cigarette. All three of us witness a small 'ball' of red dart accross the sky - north to south - sort of. Way too fast to be anything 'man made'.

ufo

i saw same thing 1.45 am from Tawa. orange ball of light heading fairly fast no sound going nrth to sth went for about 10secs then seamed to explode, i could see flames like a firework,but this was deffenatly no manmade firework

Fireball

Second time I see the fireball...long orange, wide light, no moise, lasted about 3 seconds, up high then went down, but dissapeared before mid horizon towards north, in southeastern massachusetts about 3 weeks ago, so about middle of September 2010 at around 11 pm. The first time, it was at the same location, by the river, but it was so much more closer, and going east to west. My boyfriend was with me as well, and we both went like "wow, what was that?". He is not into UFOs, he is a doctor, so he always finds an explanation for everything -but that time, it took him some time to decide it may have been a meteor. And I was like "yeah right, that low and close? it could have made the news by now, don't you think? ".

Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to see a few things... the most peculiar
was a dark triangle with 3 big round green lights, one in each corner, stationary in the sky, very low, extremely low, just about a house as I was nearing my home. Too bad I was driving and starting to take a turn, otherwise I would have stopped to observe it. I am 100% sure, it was not an identified craft as we know it.

ball of fire (?)

On my way in to work at 5am (Austin TX, travis county) as I drove north bound on IH35 coming up on the overpass of 290 I saw a lage white ball with flames at the end of it coming down about to hit ground, this was a very clear sighting as it was not far from IH 35. this was west of 35 as I drove norh bound. as it hit ground I saw a white flash which was low to the ground.

Big bright unusual object in Southern Skies

Noticed it on 5 October 2010, between 10 and 10.30 pm, South-West of Riverton, Southland: a big bright yellow/white 'object', too big to be a star, but I'm not an expert. It disappeard behind the horizon (hills), in the same direction, after 10.30 pm. It didn't seem round shaped, and at times I saw a tiny little red light. There is no airtraffic in this region, and certainly not at night. Or is there?

red glows

Yes I saw the glowing balls on the evening of 10/2 around 10-11pm. We were at a sports event so at first I thought it was one of those fireworks that goes up and slow and then bursts. Then I was thinking, yeh it's moving pretty dang slow. It didn't disappear for a couple minutes and I had thought if it was a satalite, they don't glow. It was awesome and so weird at the same time. I saw 2 that night about an hour apart.

Colorful shooting star

My wife and I had just entered I-75 northbound in Clarkston MI, when we both spotted a shooting star that looked like it was dropping straight down from the sky. It flashed red, white, yellow and blue. It was large enough in the sky that at first my wife and I had thought it was an airplane. It was traveling northwest at around 23:30 hours on 10/2/10.

Fire in the sky?

My husband and I have seen this twice now in the past month, and I am excited and intrigued to find that many others have also seen the same thing, or at least similar all over the world.

First on September 9 at around 11pm, and second tonight at around 8pm. We are in the UK and both times the objects were moving in an East to West direction.

As for what they were, it's hard to describe! They looked (to me) like something on fire, floating gently across the sky not too fast and not too slow but very beautiful and bright orange. And each time, they went a certain distance and then dimmed until completely gone.

We would really like to know what these are! They're amazing!

bright orange lights over Auckland

tonight (26/09/2010) I saw two bright orange/red lights travel across the sky in Auckland. They were very bright, quite like a meteorite but without the speed. At first one was faster than the other then the second one caught up and they maintained uniform separation before fading out approximately 10seconds later. They travelled in a NW to SE direction, VERY bright to begin with but not enough to illuminate the sky. Was pretty freaky, too fast to be a plane or satellite. They faded out without any burst or an breakup just went dim all of a sudden then disappeared.

26/09/2010 I saw two bright

26/09/2010 I saw two bright orange lights travel across the sky in Auckland also but moving in an upwards direction...what was it?

Red/Orange light

Saturday...September 25,2010 Ranchester, Wyoming.

I saw at 11:02pm a strange slow moving red/orange light. At first I thought is was a shooting star, but it was to slow. This object moved in a down upward direction, east to west. 3 seconds after I saw another object just to the left where the first object began...same color but smaller move up and vanish within 2 seconds.

Strange lights

East Coast New Zealand- Gisborne. 8pm just saw what looked like a satelite moving high across the sky ...a small area away from it another light seemed to light up bright (like a flash) and then disappear as did the moving light. Is this space junk burning up?
Very curious.

UK - firey object

Driving home through the New Forest, Hampshire at about 23:50 hours I saw an object going across the sky. It was an orange/brown in colour and had a smoke like trail behind it, it was travelling at speed (about that of an small aircraft, and the same height as a cesna type aircraft). It was travelling from a south - north direction. It was an incredibe sight and it was a shame I lost sight of it (due to driving!!). Incredible!

Last night "Sep 14, 2010

Last night "Sep 14, 2010 Anaheim Area" I was walking home from my friends house a block down around 1:00AM, I saw in total 4 big bight balls dropping from the sky on after the other.Not sure if i saw color happened very quickly and obviously wasn't expecting it. was amazing not sure what is was though. any ideas?
