Not sure what I saw!

Light in sky Auckland City

Just been sitting in my patio having a drink and noticed a pulsating light which looked like a satellite but I’ve never seen one with a pulsating light before? Then approx 5mins later a brighter light which again looked like a satellite but was particularly brighter but no flashing lights so assuming it’s not a plane! Thursday 21/12/2017 @ 22:15

White and blue ball

Orange reddish ball of light in the sky

Last night December 18, 2017 at about 9:30ish pm, just north of Blythe, Ca I seen an orange reddish non-flashing ball of light traveling from west to east in the sky. It was moving pretty fast and seemed like it was descending from the sky and then disappeared. Never had I seen anything like it, it was very steady, not moving up or down just straight.

Green Meteor?

I was driving East on Windsor St. In Sun Prairie when I saw a long arc of green light in the sky. I watched as it fizzled out above the gray winter tree-tops.

Red dot seen in the sky at around 10:30 pm Saturday 16/12/17

Me and two other people witnessed a small red dot (about the same size as the stars) moving in a horizontal direction, first seen in the north east heading south relativly slowly (about the speed of a Air NZ plane). It increased in size slightly, then after about 15 seconds the ball flashed twice and then disappeared. Observed in Karori, Wellington at 10:30 pm.


Sounds like the international space station.

I just happend to glance at my window looking east at 12:16am on the 14 of December. And I saw a massive green asteroid go across the sky. A minute later I realised that I must have been whatching it through the clouds as that part of the sky was full of clouds, or it was below the clouds??. From Northumberland uk.

My husband came in the house to get me to look at the sky around 1:00 am in McMinnville TN. He stated he had seen several fallen stars and wanted me to see them as well. Exciting to say I seen several fallen stars myself. One of them was significantly bigger and brighter then the rest and was much faster but it was a beautiful show for sure. Not sure if this was a form of a meteor shower or if anyone else got to see this but it was amazing


I was driving home from work when i saw a large meteor or some thing blast down through the sky at a very high speed. it was so big that it looked like a plane in the distance, only it was moving fare too fast, i mean mega fast.the bright light disappeared before it got to the harrison. I am in Tenerife canary islands. off the west coast of north Africa. I was in the south of the island. I would say the meteor was approximately , west, south west looking from the south of the island toward north.
