huge falling star in tucson, az!

it is June 16, 2017 at 9:20 pm, in tucson,, az, and i just saw this huge falling star just brighten up the night sky! Usually we don't have the most favorable views of the stars because its pretty dark in our summer skies. Plus i live directly behind a car dealership, and they leave their lights on all night. Nevertheless, i just saw a huge bright light, even brighter than the moon, appear out of nowhere in the eastern direction, and it fell toward the earth and then it disappeared. Awesome, I tell you!

Red Ball In the Sky

Good day I am from Johannesburg South Africa. I was driving this morning around 6:05am (15/06/2017) when I saw a big red ball with orange "flames" in the sky coming down toward the land over the south of Johannesburg this morning I don't know what it is or where it hit. I thought maybe a plane crashed but I have not heard anything about a plane crashing what else could this be?

Big fireball...

Was it moving fast through the sky? How big would you guess it was? How far up in the sky did it seem to be and then how close did it get to you? Did it ever stop? Was there anybody else around and did they also take notice? I'm curious, since I saw a large blood red-orange fireball just over two years ago.

Was that a shooting star very close to earth?

I just saw something very fast and bright, similar to a shooting star but mych bigger and faster !

Shooting star

At 06:06 South Africa time in the North West Province we saw a green light entering from west it had a long tail ... as it moved along the tail glowed red like sparkles and it exploded in the east. Must say it was beautiful.

Bright light spotted.

Hi, We saw a bright white ball in the sky this morning, it was huge and quite low. It travelled west to east over the city. It had no tail but it looked like there was sparks behind it.

Green, Red and White Batman Shaped Object

This bright light travels very fast. Doesn't stay still. I noticed it late night while I was opening my window for air. For a min I thought it may had been a remote air satélite. My husband thinks I'm seeing things. Anyways, I pulled out my telescope. With the telescope I was able to get a clear view. It is Shaped similar to a bat. The outline was green with red inner and White in the middle. It stands still for a moment then it looks like its traveling towards you. Literally freaked me out. For the record I'm not losing it. However it has me very curious and concern as to this strange light that appears at night. San Bernardino County.

Comet or meteor

At around 6:20pm this evening I was taking my son to the ER in Dandenong north vic I saw a bright light in the sky and thought it was the emergency helicopter but when I watched it move across the sky from west to south it began to present a firey tail it was so bright and moved too quick to be a flying vehicle. I thought it was a shooting star then but it was much to big and bright and had a large lingering tail it disappeared into the horizon I honestly thought I was going to hear a huge bang as it did. Was amazing to watch
