Green and blue trailing off of white light

Me too!

I saw the exact same thing on the 22nd but I am from Niagara Falls on the Canadian side... it stretched across the sky. I was outside using my phone and the light caught my eye... I looked up in the sky and saw the MASSIVE green ball in the sky... at first I thought it was a "shooting star".. but the size of this green ball was like nothing I've ever seen. It was much larger in mass than anything I've ever seen in the sky.. it disappeared behind the houses, a few seconds later I heard a huge "THUD" from wherever it crashed/landed.. it sounded like it hit the earth.. it looked so close to me in the sky.. but the THUD I heard was almost so silent so that I don't think anybody would have noticed if not paying attention.. the sound of it falling to the earth sounded like it was so far away but it actually looked so close.

Over in Brisbane Aus we just saw a similar thing around 9:50 PM AEST. Looking west, it lasted about ten minutes it looks like an orange circle with small portions of it reflecting directly making them seem brighter than the rest of it. It gradually deformed into a semi-circle and then disappeared completely

Strange lights

Around 630pm tonight my 4 year old daughter and I witnessed what seemed to be a very bright reddish orange light which also appeared to be a star at first glance but it illuminated more and more then suddenly there appeared 2 lights above and below one another they then shifted side by side each other slowly drifted away 1 right the other left and dissapeared - I presumed it could've been some fancy firework display - Ive never seen such an event. I tried to get footage but what I managed to capture did not give it any true justice to what was actually seen.

All I have to say is WOW! It was approximately 1:10am on Sunday September 17, 2017 as I am at a red light and I experienced an amazing super BRIGHT light just zoom across the sky at a very high speed. My thought was, if I tell someone what I just seen, they'll think that I am crazy. Then coming this morning I look it up and it was a SHOOTING STAR !!!! a lot OF PEOPLE OVER THE WORLD SEEN IT ! WOW I am located in Philadelphia and it occurred around 1:10am on Sunday September 17, 2017 .

Shooting star

Exactly at 12:25AM, i and my girlfriend witnessed a strange blueish-white light suddenly appearing in the sky as if it were slowly falling and then it slowly faded into nothing. I was watching the area because a plane was by it at the time of its sudden apparition. It was West of me in Inland Empire, California. Crazy shit

Blue light

My daughter was outside last night about 1 am and her and her husband noticed a blue light streaking across the sky. They followed it until the light disappeared into her neighbors yard. She has concluded it must have been a meteor falling from the sky. She said it was spectacular to witness. She lives in Elkridge Maryland.

Baltimore Meteor

I also saw a flash of light across the entire sky last night around 1 AM. It was so bright that I could see everyone and everything like it was daylight and it was literally the entire visible sky. I was in Middle River Maryland, and I saw a huge streak of almost sparkling might shoot directly down from the sky to the south. It was spectacular. The actual head of the streak (the meteor I guess?) was bigger than the moon from my perspective.

Blue Flash of Light - Southern Chester County PA, USA

From our patio in Chadds Ford, PA looking towards western sky early Sept 17th, we saw a flash of blue light between 1am & 2am that lit up the sky. It looked like a blue horizontal lightening flash where it made a circle and had a squiggly tail. It was very fast, just a couple of seconds, made no sound - no thunder, and we waited for another occurrence, but never saw anything after. Looks that others in our area saw it too.

Meteor?

Massive blue flash that lit up the sky in ridgely M.D. and about 1 in the morning. I got a glimpse of it at the last second it looked like something fell out of the sky, or burned up quickly in the atmosphere. No idea what it was but it was bright enough for me and my brother to do a complete 180 while I was driving stopping mid sentence to see what it was.
