Red Glow

In Ellerslie Auckland New Zealand...sitting out on the deck the whole sky glowed red tonight at about 7:30 not sure as just decided to have a look online to see if there was any news and sure enough people from all over the world have seen the same or similar.

Red lights over auckland

Saw this as well from one tree hill. Glowed once at around 8:15. Noticed it again at around 10:30 where it happened 4 times in a row. The whole sky glowed red, quite bright, lasting about 2 seconds each time. Seemed to be centered over Onehunga.
My guess would be the misty evening mixed with lights from a Waikaraka speedway event, but it was quite strange to see!

Red light

I just saw a red, fiery light in the sky. Only one. Passing Redhill, Papakura. I thought it was a plane at first, then for a second a shooting star, but, it wasn't. I'm curious as to know what it is. It didn't look like it was falling, more like it was searching for something. I don't know. It was weird and has me curious. 

Red lights

I live in Christchurch and last night I saw red lights as well, about 10 of them. They looked like they were coming from the south heading north. They looked like slow moving shooting stars. So weird and creepy.

oh my goodness

On my way home from school I witnessed a blue/green fireball with a white tail shoot down from the sky at an angle, then just dissappear.. I couldn't believe it at first, but it was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen in my life.

Blue and Green Fireball

I live in North Mississippi and just witnessed a blue and green fireball with a tail falling from the north toward the south.  It was huge and freaky.  I really expected to hear it crash, but it didn't.  I could even here it making a sizzling noise.

Flaming balls over chch 20-11-14

I seen three objects tonight around 2200 over Christchurch, first was headed southeast, was orange and two smaller peices broke off and dissappered, then a large bit heading south glowing orange went right over head, no sonic booms heard. Then appeared to stop burning and continue. A third object followed but then fluttered, wavered and appeared to drop like a heavy feather, still glowing, over west coast. Cool but scary.

Yes I saw this in Nelson.

Yes I saw this in Nelson. Most amazing thing I've seen....other than birth of my sons. Was waiting to feel something after impact lol

White light with tail

I was standing on the deck around 23:25 when I noticed a white glow come through the clouds. It was traveling in roughly a North to South direction. It had a small bright white 'head' and a tail which grew in length as it travelled over. I was moving fairly quickly but not as fast as a shooting star, this was much larger, the whole event lasted perhaps 2-3 seconds and it faded out as it passed over towards Wellington harbour.

Straight line cloud


My name is ron from Bangalore India. I saw a strange straight line cloud from one end to the other end. It looks like a rocket has just flew across the sky and the smoke release from the rocket but the smoke is so constant that it not fading off like any other jet plane smoke release. Dont really know what is that exactly and how it happened.


If you know the answer then please reply.




Orange fireball over Orange, Texas

I was standing in the parking lot of a local restaurant talking with some friends when I noticed an orange fireball in the sky as I was facing the south. This occured at about 7 p.m. CST. It made me think of fireworks at first but it was very brief and fast.

bright light of coast of Dunedin

At 8:50pm on the 16th November 2014 seen a bright orange light that looked like it was falling, very slowly. Dane color as a street light much brighter and bigger. Also it was out at sea so could not have been a street light. I seen it coming down Eglinton Road and it was between st Clair and st kilda beach. After coming home by wife said she seen out too native 10 or so minutes after me. Not sure what it was but her description matched mine, falling very slowly. She seen it for longer but lost sight as it went below trees in the way of our view from home

ChesterSprings PA

Saw a blue green ball with long white tail fall quickly over dark sky tonight. Direction was West over PA turnpike. Near Downingtown Exit. Saw a post here near Milky WayFarm which is close by. We see these on a regular basis . Lack of light makes seeing them easier. This one tonight appeared to fall at a very low level quickly

There was an orange streak in the sky tonight(November 12th, 2014) before it got dark. It was moving up and down, left to right. It also had another part under it that was also orange.

I was traveling on Rt. 248 yesterday somewhere close to 4:55 PM. There was a fireball of somesort directly in front of me in the sky. I was trying to figure out if it was a plane reflecting the sunset and looking red or if it was actually on fire. It didn't have a long tail but it did have a wide tail. It was beautiful but I wish I knew what I was looking at. It went behind clouds and I never found it again. This was near Bath, Pa shich is northeastern Penna.

Nov.11/2014 langley bc canada

Just saw something shoot through the sky, going east (thought to be a meteor) around 6:30 pm over langley bc canada. Bright blueish white. Fairly large. 

I just saw a meteor falling

I just saw a meteor falling in the night sky at about 6:45pm in Collegedale, TN, driving in the road to my father-in-law's house. At first I thought it was a giant shooting star but it was like a flaming ball that kept going! It was spectacular!


I just seen a huge ball of mass falling thru the sky tonight (11.10.14 9:30pm est) over my house in Georgetown Delaware. The mass looked to be about an eighth the size of the moon.

Yes! I saw Big Blue Ball of Light Crashing in Delaware Sky Too!

About 4:40 am on Monday,, November 10, 2014, I was driving on Rt 1 toward the Delaware Memorial Bridge from Middletown, DE. Just after the costume store, I witnessed a huge ball of light toward my right side windshield. It was huge,looked man-made, was blue and white in color and streaked across the sky making a comet-like sound. It was too huge to be a comet.

Green ball

Just saw a big one at 2:45am Texas huge very very bright fast but slow. Beautiful thing whatever it was

Super bright light on Diamond Harbour hills

At about 9.15 this evening Monday 10th November 2014 I was looking out the window in Lyttelton and noticed a super bright light way above all the house lights of Diamond Harbour. I got out the binoculars and it looked like a huge satellite dish full of lights. It would dim down to a few lights, then super bright then vanished. It moved slowly (could maybe have been on the back of a truck?) but was very strange and unusual.

Strange cloud formation or meteorite trail

Looking at the sky line just after 8pm tonight saw what looks like a meteorite trail. When first noticed the strange cloud formation there was only one line of cloud. A few minutes later noticed another straight line of cloud. Took some photoes as thought that must be a meteorite trail and not cloud due to the shape and the other cloud formations in the sky. We are in New Zealand, Waikato, south of Hamilton. 

Saw that a little while ago

Saw that a little while ago in western Pennsylvania (U.S.) it looked like exhaust trail to me. but you're saying it was from a meteor?

Perfectly straight cloud formation 10/11/14 evening from 7pm

My wife and I saw this also and we filmed it. We started to see it just after 7pm or thereabouts and I noticed a short but straight puff of cloud high to the east but after a few minutes noticed some tiny strange blobs in a line to the north of this in line with the cloud. It seems like within seconds these tiny clouds nucleated in a perfect line heading north (the cloud was in a N/S orientation) towards Auckland and more of these strange clouds started to form in the same line to the south towards Cambridge. Over 20 minutes it started to form a continuous straight line north and south similar to a contrail but no aircraft was ever seen except a helicopter and a light plane none of which followed that track. It also looked too low to be a contrail anyway and no noise of an aircraft was ever heard. Anyway after some time we noticed a second line forming parallel to the first line as out of nothing. This was happening sometime after 7.30pm and the lines stayed in the sky and started to expand like a decaying contrail. Like the above mentioned it did look a little like a meteorite trail as seen in Russia in 2013 but of course we saw nothing so this must be a weather related phenomenon. A third thin line was seen starting up sometime later but it never became as big as the first or second cloud lines. It was bizarre just how fast these lines formed out of nothing. Got us scratching our heads so if anyone else in the Hamilton (where we are) or Waikato region saw this or could explain what is happening we would be very interested to know
