Orange Fireballs in the Sky

On the 20th Jan 2018 at around 10pm I saw these Fireballs in the sky.I live in the Ngaruawhaia Waikato New Zealand I saw them about 5 years ago also and called my sister in law to look at them so my family didn't think I was going bonkers. This time I took a photo and they are impressive when you enlarge the photo to see them. They are like Fireballs when you see them thru the naked eye, but when you take a picture they look like the moon, but smaller, but when you enlarge the photo they do look a bit like a fire ball, but not orange like you see with the naked eye a bit more yellow on camera. I have not heard of anyone else seeing them so dont know what to make of it. My son in law says they are meteors but I dont know, so if anyone does know please tell me it is very interesting............ The Fireballs seem to just come up from no where and usually one by one and are in a group of 3 then travel across the sky not to high and quite fast then just drop out of the sky again. Amazing to watch. Any info would be great to explain why I saw them, but nobody else did.

Green trail

I live in Gateshead (North East), I love looking up at the sky at night. For the past few weeks I haven't seen much and was quite disappointed, but the past week or so I have seen alot of comets and 3 meteors, I saw one tonight that seemed to be only a few hundred feet up, it flew over leaving a large green trail behind it. I have seen a few of these the past few days, I love that I've witnessed such an amazing opportunity , but to see three is life changing. There are alot of these sightings since the turn of the new year, I really hope there are alot more.

Meteor?

I live in Williamsport, IN and was letting my dog out when I saw an orange ball with a blue trail, it was absolutely stunning. It took my breath away, it was massive. So blessed that I got to see it!

ball of fire

I believe I saw the same thing. We are in central Iowa. We were coming home and I saw the fireball descending. I looked for fire on the ground as we drove on East but I. Am sure it was far away and only looked close. I too am very blessed to have seen it!

Big ball of light of yellow, green and blue colors!!

I saw this big ball of light of yellow, green and blue colors while walking across my sister’s back yard in Taylor Texas last night.. It was there in an instant and it was gone just as quickly but I waited to see if it was lightening and nothing else happened!!

Green lights

I was smoking out side I'm from green bay Wisconsin I seen something fall to the ground it had like a green tail like a fiery green tail and it was like fire color ball meaning it was a ball with a tail and the tail was Green and when it hit felt like it hit the ground it lit up a little bit don't know what it was

3 flashes

Just saw 3 massive flashes looking out north from Orewa. First though it was lightning but no thunder followed. Time was about 12:35.

Shooting Star

Tonight I saw what seemed to me to look like a shooting star, that had a long visible tail with a ball in the front that got brighter and brighter as it streaked across the sky that appeared blue and then a bright white light, then it disappeared. And then a few minutes later I heard a very loud boom sound and the floor vibrated then it stopped. Any sightings tonight at 8:05 pm, 1/16/2018 in Pontiac, MI? And what could that have been?

Meteor, flare, bottle rocket, or Hoax?

Eastern Sky - Viewed from Machesney Park IL towards Lake Michigan. At approximately 7 pm central time. I observed a very large bright green ball of light falling from the sky. I thought it was a bottle rocket (fireworks) or flare at first. It was a bright green when I first noticed it. As the object dropped the color changed from green to yellow, and then to white as it approached the ground or lake. I was expecting it to pop like a bottle rocket usually does but, It made it to the ground or into lake michigan. It was to dark to determine how far away the object was in order for me to determine where it fell. I watched the object fall for approximately 10 to 15 seconds. I was driving east from Machesney Park IL, on IL, route 173. I just looked at a map and from where I was located and the direction I saw the object fall was in the eastern sky between Waukegan and Zion IL. I couldn't get my phone on fast enough to try and record it falling. I tried. I hope that if it was a meteor, No one was hurt.

Meteor over Detroit MI

It appears that personal cameras on people's homes or in their cars have caught the flash of this meteor over Detroit MI. CNN has broadcasted several videos submitted by those lucky enough to have had cameras rolling during the time this happened. I am hoping more videos will surface tomorrow as this was amazing to witness. I have never seen anything like it. (With my own eyes). As someone else here mentioned, and I agree, it was "Magnificent ".

Light in sky

Tonight I saw a very bright light in the sky. Like some kind of explosion. Felt the ground tremble under my truck.

Meteor maybe

Aaround 7:15 PM central time I saw a green fast flash of a bright object - quickly moving towards the ground near the Rollins Savanna which is located in Grayslake and round Lake Illinois. It was wider than it was tall. I’ve never seen anything like this before it was quite amazing and very fast-moving.

Meteor

In Ocho Rios, Jamaica around 9:00pm last night I saw this big orange red ball with a beautiful tail. It lasted about 5 seconds and then just disappeared. That’s when I realized it must have been a meteor!

Asteroid?

At 1am straight up, Oklahoma City, in the western sky I saw a something falling from the sky. It was orange and looked like a bar of light. It was moving pretty fast and fell out of sight behind the trees and homes. Space trash or asteroid?

Meteor

I saw it too over Jamaica! So cool!

UFO last night

Around 10.30 pm 13/1/18 I was on our deck watching the sky and listening to the sea (Doubtless Bay) something I do regularly - saw a flash in my peripheral vision, turned and saw a ball? bright yellow/ green tinge on outer edge, falling, moving horizontally not straight down. I didn't see where it originated from - my viewing only lasted a second or two. It just vanished - I thought into the sea? Not the usual distant fleeting glimpses I get of "falling stars'. Others say they saw something too. Don't think it was fireworks as it was a solitary event - there were fireworks happening in a different direction and some distance from where I saw this meteor? comet?

Green circle ball in sky moving fast

In 01/13/2018 night time. I was in the bed room. Some bright light flashing so I look out to sky. Saw a bright green circle ball moving in sky like snake going down. Just last one second or two. I know it's not fire work. Because it's like half of the bright moon. It's beautiful. But no one believe me. This is the reason I start searching in Internet. I am so glad that someone saw this light ball too and experience are identical like mine.

Something in the sky

Hi today 1/7/2018 at about 11:55am I saw something in the sky to the south we live in Brandon Florida it didn’t have a trail behind which leads me to believe that it’s not a jet. I took a picture but can’t upload it to this.

Something in the sky

I too, live close to Brandon was heading home to Thonotosassa that same night, and saw something very strange in the sky. My husband thought I was completely crazy. The one I saw though was bright orange like fire, had a small tail but was hardly moving at all. When I finally got my husband to pull over to see it, it disappeared, but looked as if it exploded. It turned to white sparkles like a firework that just exploded and it was gone. But the one I seen, was a bit earlier that night. Maybe around 9:30 or 10. My son caught a small glimpse of it as well. Strange stuff. Maybe we were having a meteor shower that night, but I have never seen one like that.

Green meteor

Hi, I live in Columbia, TN, US and I saw a meteor, green in color streaking across the sky. First one I've ever seen! I kept questioning wether or not I had really seen it until I decided to Google it and actually got results!

Meteorite

Hi I live in Edmonton Alberta Canada and at around 5:45 PM I was walking my dog when what I think saw was a meteorite. I'm not 100% sure it was a meteor, but it looked like one. It was a greenish blue surrounding it in colour and lasted only about a second and a half. When I saw it, I was completely stunned and surprised.

Bright white light in the sky

Hi I'm from East Belfast northern Ireland about a week an a half ago I saw a large white ball with a tail at high speed for about 4 seconds, it was in a downward angle looked like it was going to crash then it just disappeared over towards the black mountain, never seen anything like it before. Yours sincerely Valerie

Possible meteor?

I live in Sydney, Australia. At around 2:40am (give or take) in the morning of 5/1/18 (UTC+10), I saw for a split second, something bright and blue falling VERTICALLY in the sky. I was facing East, and the object appeared quite large. It may have been my imagination though (late night), but I just want to make sure I'm not going crazy or anything lol

Fireball in NE sky seen fm Franz Josef Glacier

I’m traveling here fm USA. Standing next to road behind Te Waonui hotel in franz Josef glacier facing my friends when over their heads in the low NE sky I see large fireball heading toward horizon. It disappears behind mountains within a half second. Very bright and short lived. I’ve never seen one that big or bright.
