Red star

Slow moving red star mistaken for mars is Not mars.

Strange star twinkling red blue white green

So lastnight (23/11/2017 - Manukau, Auckland, NZ) around between 9.30pm me and my boyfriend noticed a strange star quite low in the eastern sky that was flashing multiple colors. Red,blue, green,white. Now my eyesight long range is pretty blurry. If u have bad long sight than u would know that any light from a distance usually looks alot brighter as if if the light around its origin is amplified. The wierd thing about this colorful light is that the light around it was changing shapes? It change from round to more elongated and all i see is the light surrounding becoming bigger and brighter and almost like the shape of a snowflake, like the light around the source was changing shapes. (My bf who has good vision did confirm to me that what i was seeing was correct and that it was moving and the light was becoming brighter and brighter) we looked around and noticed this particular colourful star was the only one blinking different colours and it moved lower in the sky at a slow rate. We headed back into the house and i decided to go back and check about 2 hours later and it was gone. But every other white star thats always in the sky was still there. It was very odd and ive never seen anything like it before. Ive researched and some say its a star that looks different colors because of the light hitting our atmosphere and its position being low. But how come these particular stars move across the sky , change shapes and dissappear? Why is it that every other star we see stays in its same position and only these move? I have seen multiple reports and videos of these sightings across the world. I just want to know if anyone else in my country has seen this.

Falling Star.

I was walking my dog around midnight a few days ago in Morris Connecticut. From the corner of my eye A bright light caught my attention coming from the other side of the street. I turned and saw what I can only describe as a small comet or meteor-like object falling behind the tree line and as soon as it got low enough it literally disappeared and seemed to flame out. I don’t know what it was but it was really weird. I mean; it can’t be a comet or a meteor but what the heck was it?

3 Red Lights and 1 Green flying really fast

Saw an object in the sky, definitely not an airplane. There was three bright red lights, and 1 subtle green light side of it. It was moving really fast, like a car going 100mph. It went back and forth once, and then suddenly disappeared. This happened around 9:15pm in Miramar, FL

Green orb

Early this morning, around 6am on the eastern coast of the US, I just saw a fluorescent green orb shoot diagonally across the southern sky. It happened very quickly, silent, no tail.

Double light source, orange

At about 11:40pm two orange lights traveling together, which appeared out of nowhere heading west to east over Mt Vic but at the height of an aircraft but ever so slightly faster than plane lights. It then started to fade out to nothing.

WTF was that

I have no idea what I just saw it was a pretty big fireball with and orange white tail behind it ... It looked as if it was falling but then out of nowhere the thing changed it's projectery and shot upward losing the tail and splitting into two smaller balls of light with one trailing behind the other then it just sorta sat it the sky doe like 2 minutes before fading out .... I just wanna know wth I saw !!! Oh and I'm in El Rio CA socal

Hey I think I saw the same

Hey I think I saw the same thing. By any chance did happen early Sunday morning like around 1 or 2 am.

Red Fireball Meteorite!

Approx. 15 minutes ago, I just witnessed a large red/orange thing in the sky heading South to North go through the sky. I though it must have been fireworks, but no sound and way too fast and high. A small piece broke off the rear before disappearing and then moments late the larger piece disappeared prior to hitting the horizon. It was absolutely amazing!

Comment New Plymouth

I saw this too!!! The perfect moment sitting in the outdoor bath looking up and the stars and then I saw the most amazing shooting star I've ever seen! The same as you, at first I thought it was a firework but like you said, it was far too high and far away in the sky. Definitely right place, right time!!! Beautiful!!

Green flaring COMET SHOOTING ACROSS THE SKY TRINIDAD

My wife and I were on our porch in Valencia Trinidad and tobago. She was the one that saw it first, I was having a convo with her with my back turned to it. Suddenly here face was surprised as If she saw a ghost. I immediately turned around and from deep into the skies I saw it falling, flaring like a neon green ball and disappeared. I have never seen anything like that in my life.

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

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

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
