Bright green flare-like light moving fast over Germany

Observed tonight at 17.45 CET 14th November 2017 in sky above Limburgerhof, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany. Bright green light. Moving fast in northerly direction. Thought it was a flare at first but it moved off at great speed after an initially slow approach. Probably space debris. Any news?

We saw it as well while walking our dogs. We live in Dannstadt-Schauernheim and were walking out on the farm roads and a very bright light came on behind us. Thought it was headlights of a vehicle until we turned around and saw a extremely bright blue-green fireball shooting across the sky. It was heading towards the Rheinland-Pfalz mountains. It burned out and saw pieces breaking apart before it burned out. Amazing sight!

Odd light over Dargaville

9pm and I look up at the sky to see what looks like a very low flying satellite but very slow. It traveled from West to East for abit then wobbled from side to side then suddenly stopped and the light vanished. Very odd. My husband was watching with me.

I saw something about the same time as The last poster, in Huntly last night at about Midnight I saw a blueish White ball streak across the sky with a long tail. It was low in the sky and seemed really close...

Auckland

12:13am saw an asteroid for about 3 seconds over Mangere Bridge! Burned really bright like the moon.

Meteor

I thought I witnessed a meteor tonight around ten pm. I’m in waipuna cove and it was across the city. Followed by shooting star. Can anyone confirm this

Sighting

About 4pm November 9th I saw a meteor moving very slowly (could that have been the angle??) in the sky. It disappeared behind some clouds but I’d never seen anything like that before. A tiny dot with a stream behind it. Seemed to slow down every now and then like there was some resistance. I live in New Plymouth, New Zealand and it was south side dropping above the sea. I

Bright green fireball/meteor

I'm located in Northern Virginia in the Gainesville area off of 29 and at about 9:15-9:20pm I saw what appeared to be a bright green fireball/meteor falling from the sky right in front of me at a downward/horizontal angle coming from right to left. Happened pretty fast and then vanished. Never seen that before. Definitely got my attention and now I'm curious to know what exactly that was. * I posted twice sorry. Forgot to add the time frame in original post

Saw bright green light

I live in the country in arcade,ny,USA.not many lights around. at about 915pm on nov 10 2017 looking outside while waiting for the dog to come in I saw a flash of green light that expanded and then disappeared. Nothing else in the sky. There was a helicopter that had gone by about half an hour before.

Falling light

Stormville, Ny Nov. 10, 2017 aprox 21:20. Looking west, saw a light falling very rapidly vertical to the ground. I never saw anything like this before. It seemed close, maybe 10 miles.

Meteor

Saw huge bright light in sky with orange orb at the bottom shoot rapidly from South Coast Wellington -Owhiro Bay towards Airport at around 9:10 PM.

meteor over Cook Straight tonight, 10 Nov 2017

I watched from my picture window a large white object streak across the sky at about 20deg above horizon. It zoomed West to East at about 9pm on 10 Nov 2017. It seemed to breakup and then disappear somewhere south of Wellington airport. It appeared quite large, much, much larger than the landing lights from a aeroplane (which we see often when the planes come from the south). Tonight the planes are landing from the north so we can't see them.

Meteor

Just saw a meteor east of Wellington. very bright, orange light low in the sky above the orongorongos. Lit up for about 2-3 seconds or more. Seemed to be a long time. Also the size of the glow suggested it was close to earth. Came down maybe in the South Wairarapa?

In Louisiana by lake maurpas.

In Louisiana by lake maurpas. Saw a green light with it looked like a loosely lit streak behind it. It in the southeast. Coming from up high and going down over the horizon.

Burning object falling

There was a object shooting through the sky tonight, not like a star way out in space though. Must have been a meteorite. Only saw for maybe two seconds but it looked close and was burning until it went out. Couple of what looked like sparks came off. I wonder just how many others fell as that must have been the only time I looked up tonight and just happened to see it. Fort St. John B.C Canada!!

Shooting star??

I'm in Arapuni, Waikato NZ. I just saw the biggest blue shooting star with an orange tail. At least I think it was a shooting star. It was huge. It can from high in the sky and down onto or behind Maungatautari maunga. It was beautiful. It was so big and came from very high in the sky I'm 100% sure that it wasn't fireworks.

Meteor seen from Auckland 10pm 06/11/2017

Just saw what I think must be a meteor from Auckland travelling southeast to northwest - it was an incredibly beautiful bright blue light with a trail travelling too fast and too silently for an aircraft or firework. Feeling pretty lucky to have seen such an amazing sight!

Commet?

Just witnessed at 10.02 Monday the 6th of November What appeared to be a quite substantial sized commet. Orange ball blue tail shoot past our lounge deck above the Tahekeroa hills And dropped out further into makarau?

What appeared to be a commet?

Have just witnessed at about 10.02 Monday the 6th of November What appeared to be a commet located out the back in tahekeroa/makarau area. It was quite a substantial size that shot past with a blue tail and orange ball that disappeared along the west what looked to be in the hills.

Orange Orb (UFO) in Night Sky

Tonight in Auckland being the 5th of November at approximately 10:40pm I observed an Orange Orb moving across the sky from the West to the East then it started to move up until it went through the clouds. No it wasn't fireworks as they were still going off in my neighborhood this was much higher. No it wasn't an aircraft as I work with Aircraft at Auckland Airport and this did not have the haul marks of an aircraft and no it wasn't a helicopter either there was no noise at all. Some may say it was a flare however flares tend to start up high and slowly drift along and downwards this kept going up folks and never came back down. I thought at first I was looking at the Space Station or a Satellite but this was traveling below the cloud level and then rose up through the clouds. There must have been many people tonight who saw this object even though it was for a very short moment. Please let me know if you saw this Orb in the sky.

Orb

I saw a Orb on Monday night in Auckland at about 11pm going from west to north east. I saw it for about 30 seconds below cloud cover and it was red with no flashing lights or noise. It was not a plane or helicopter as i live on the flight path and know what the planes look like at night. I did mange to get a photo of the area that i saw it, very strange. Thanks dave

In Hawkes bay same

I also saw, with three others. I found it quite scarey while the others laughed about it being a drone, we tried to video it and the result is nothing like what was in front of us as the phone was moved a lot and attempting to zoom didn’t work, anyway it went at a steady pace, no movements side, no noise, no idea what it was but I have thought and talked a lot about it,
