l was driving on highway 63 between lafollette and harrogate to around 5:30 pm on 10/19 2016 when I saw a big fire ball come out of the sky going toward middlesboro it was really moving fast does anyone have any idea what it was

Oct 19 2016

This morning at around 730 I was at work when I saw a huge ball of fire dropping out of the sky. my boss said it might have been a test rocket. but it stopped before hitting the ground and was hovering.....really crazy....makes me very curious. i am in sumter county florida

Fallon stars

october 19th at 8 am about I nosticed four shooting stars on the Cleveland skyline. There were moving slow and short. At the beginning I thought there were military jet planes exercis, but those leave a long streak behind, and they are very fast. A meteor has a fast move but with a short "tail". So I really don't know what were those. 

White fire ball with tail on fire

While I was walking my daughter to school this morning I noticed a white ball with a very distinctive Firey Tail it looks beautiful from afar almost like a firework I'm pretty sure it was just a meteor falling and I spotted this from Orlando Florida at about 7:30 a.m. 10/19/16

Falling blinking light in distance

I just wanted to document this, I'm not sure in any way shape or form as to what this might have been. But my first thoughts were that something was falling? I'm not 100% that I've ever seen a shooting star so that was another thought but I feel like they're a solid strike of light rather than a blinking almost beckoning looking one. 


I'm located three stories up on the top of a hill on coromandel street in newtown, looking out towards Wakefield hospital and the distance further is around about where I thought I saw this, just minutes ago




Shooting Star Over Christchurch

Christchurch New Zealand: Thursday October 20 at 00:05, I saw a shooting star that was brilliant white (but small) that lasted about half a second in the northern area of the sky.

Green light shooting across the sky

tonight I saw a green light shoot across the sky, I was able to watch it for approximately 5 seconds.  Auckland, New Zealand


Very large bright, turquoise oval shape in Kimberly bc, over the ski hill fell out of sight


I took my dog out at about 5 am two days ago sand 

I was astonished by a massive fireball full of color not 

very far from my location fall to earth.  I have never seen anything that 

close. I could even hear it.  It was amazing   I wondered how 

far it really was as it seemed very close.  I just wondered out it 

could do any damage.  But it truly was an incredible credible site 

Retangle light

was a passenger in a car when I seen something flash in the sky, looked up and noticed a rectangle shaped object in the sky that appeared to have 3 window panes in a line. My husband was driving and he said he was watching it go in the oppisite direction and when it flashed was when it changed direction. It came over top of our car was low, yet no noise what so ever. I tried to snap some pictures, yet it just disappeared. It was around 7:30 to 8 PM. We where traveling in Johnson City Tennessee.

Green light streaks across sky

This morning in Ottawa Ontario Canada on Old Richmond road at 5:46 am my husband and I saw a green light streak across the sky falling to earth then burn out. 

Blue light in the sky

I was walking to the car to head to my bus stop and as I walked I saw above the car in the purple morning sky a blue white light resembling a comet, it had a spark on the round part and was going rapidly downward heading god knows where. I had pointed it to my mom who was in the car waiting for me but she didn't see me point so I was the only one who saw it, I think. And I've been searching it up but I don't know what it was, a comet, asteroid, or meteor? Metorite? 

did anyone see the object in the sky tonight?

I was awaiting the launch of the orbital ATK Antares rocket in my yard. I was not aware the launch had been postponed. So i sat in my yard, Eastern Long Island NY, for about 5 mins. It was approximately 20:09 EST when i saw what appeared to be a star, ISS or what i thought to be the rocket moving at a rather decent speed accros the night sky headed from SE to NE. I was excited thinking that i was watching the rocket. It went over a tree line and i ran to the other side but i couldnt fin it (Too much light polution). In any case, I had it times at 2 mins before i lost it. My question is, did anyone else see it?

fire in the sky

I was off the Jersey Shore last night around 10pm when I saw it. I radioed the Captain of the vessel I'm on, and he told me it was a rocket. I really don't think he was correct. That thing was a big ball of fire. We watched it for nearly 10 minutes before it vanished.

green meteor over western ks

Driving between Wakeeney and Hill City, Ks on 10/15/2016 at about 10:25 pm my wife and I witnessed a very bright green meteor appearing east of the highway.  It appeared to be within a few miles to the east of the highway.  It was visible for about 3 to 4 seconds and then seemed to flare out and disappear as it approached the ground.  Quite a sight! 

Bright multi coloured star

At around 7:18 pm here in Sri Lanka I saw a bright multi coloured star like something and it was going down little by little. It had like lines coming out of it and after some time it disappeared 

Saw something possibly fireball tonight

My daughter and I were coming home around 7:15 pm in the East sky we saw something falling from the sky it was so low and very bright. After about 3 munites it gradually faded away. Whatever it was boy was it a site to see! We live in Overland Park , Kansas

I saw it toooo amazing!!!

what did i see?

11:50 pm.. Was outside on my front porch looking above the neighbors house in the sky and saw a bright white light falling fast... Unsure what  was.. Normally when i see a shooting star its fast above.. Not falling straight down.. Any ideas??


I just saw the same thing a minute ago, I'm super curious to figure out what it is.


Every night for the past few months I've been seeing a bright star or planet or meteor in the western sky. It's always right when the sum goes down and within an hour it is no longer visible. It is very bright. Much brighter than any planet I've seen before. Tomorrow night I'll check it out with my telescope and report back. I live in Lancaster Pennsylvania.


Awesome sight !

This morning close to 4 am I stepped out of the bathroom and looked out of my backdoor and I saw what appeared to be a very close, fast and very large shooting star or actually two stars . It could have been that one was following the other so close it looked like it could be a tail.Beautiful and exciting! I feel like today's going to be a good day. I am in Orange County, California .


I'm in Sarasota,  FL.  About 5:15 am today 10/13/16,  to the North I saw what looked similar to a falling star, but larger and had a sparkling trail (split seconds). Meteor?? 

Saw the same thing this

Saw the same thing this morning in Dunedin Fl.  Heard thuds hit ground after sparkling  Explosion near ground.

bright light in the sky

Today, Oct 13/16 before 4am this morning fromToronto, Canada. Over an hour ago, I happen to glimpse out my window, which faces west, and saw this unusual patch of bright light. It was rectangular in shape. Immediately I grabbed my binoculars to get a better look. It faded from the bottom up like it was being clouded over, then disappeared. I don 't know how long it was there. Living in a high rise, I had not witnessed anything like this. I find it very odd and not sure what to make of it.

White ball

I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. it was approx 2am, there was a low bright-white ball going at moderate speed across the sky from east to southwest, it ended up falling downwards towards the ground and dissipated approx 200m from my condo. It almost looked as if it was going to land over the streetlights or buildings nearby. It was very bright white and sort of dimmed/disappeared as it fell, But started pretty high up. Any ideas?

Was it meteors that I saw?

Looking west from Cleveland, Ohio. I saw two or three different white slow moving streaks of light at 6:43 pm until at least 6:49 pm tonight. They had short white tails. Saw two planes with contrails (normal) one heading same general direction othe  more northerly with tails three or four times as long. If the  short tailed  lights were one inch lonng in the sky the planes had 3.5 inch tails or a little longer. Did I see meteors or a different set of planes?I took pics on an old phone, can't upload yet.


falling star

This morning at about 6:50 am in New Orleans , LA . I was standing on my front lawn looking at the sky in thought. When i seen the whatever it is shoot into to sight out of no where.  i saw what looked like a falling star. Moving quickly beyond normal speeds , flickering and flasing with white light.  It shot through the clouds and dissapeared as i was watching it. I even waited and listened for a impact sound but i heard nothing.

This is the second time ive seen a white fire ball traveling by itself randomly entering out atmosphere from the sky and dropping. 

It was definitely an advanced aircraft.


At 6:45am, today, Oct.19, 2016, I saw a white fireball with a tail stream across the South end of Clarksville, TN. Heading maybe South to North or east to west.scared me so bad. It was so big I thought it was a missile or a plane crashing.

your date of sighting

Your date in text is wrong. Just saying

Poplarville, MS

This morning around 7am, my husband and I saw a bright white streak in the sky, falling from east to west at a very fast rate. It had a tail of what I describe looked like sparks. It disappeared behind the treeline. I kept waiting to hear an impact, but we never did. 

Bright object falling from sky

I was driving south on US 45 just south of Booneville Ms between 6:40 and 7 am. in the US when I seen a bright object falling from the eastren sky very fast. It looked to almost be on fire but wasn't really. I just knew by the size of it, it would make a noise upon impact but i did not. I seen it go down below the tree line but did not see any evidence of impact or hear anything. I called the Sheriff Dept. but all they said was they have not had any reports of anything. I know it had to of made impact because it went down way too fast not to of. Someone needs to fly over in a chopper to see. 


I saw the one at 6:50 am from Caledonia Ms., I was expecting to hear a crash at Columbus Air Force base but never heard it. It was different colors, mostly green coming from the eastern sky going west. I had never seen one that large and bright and seemed to be moving slower than a shooting star.

Macon Ga

I saw something way off in the distance fall from the sky this morning over Macon Ga on my way to work.

It looked almost like a cloud flying to the ground or a plane.  I am asuming it was a meteor.  Anyone else see it?
