I saw it too!! I was driving

I saw it too!! I was driving on hwy 104 just almost at truro and saw the whole thing right in front of me driving towards halifax! It was so huge and bright and on fire and I believe I saw it as it started to burn up all the way until it kinda burst into a fiery bright light. I saw a few regular shooting stars later on that night but this was way more intense and big. What an amazing sight!!! 

Large Meteorite over Glen Haven NS - 06/28/16 @ 12:53am EST

I saw it too! 

12:53am 06/28/16 - I just saw a large meteorite! It was so amazing and beautiful. was out for a midnight walk along the shore, such a clear night I literally stepped into the dock and saw a beautiful shooting star but that was just a normal shooting star. I waiting for a bit And thought that's my one I should go back and I turned to my right and could see this bright orange thru the trees looked like the sunset I'd seven earlier but in the east so caught my eye then it travelled across the sky slower then any shooting star I've seen. Bright white ball was size of a soccer ball crossing sky at MY DISTANCE AWAY it was huge! Then faded and fell to earth like how fireworks fall, was like it was raining fire almost. 

Same here!!

I think I just saw the same one you did, here in Ontario, Canada. That's possible, right? It was the biggest and longest lasting meteor or shooting star I have ever seen. Absolutely amazing. 

I saw a falling star today!

I was heading south on I75 in downriver Detroit omw to 0hi0 and I seen a falling star around 11:00 pmish. I made a wish.lol

Red orange flare

June 25 around 10pm, me and my boyfriend were outside with our dogs when we saw a orange flare in the sky. My boyfriends first thought was a plane burning, and we rushed to get our binoculars to see if it was a plane. When I looked it was only a orange fireball, flickering white and orange. We are in Los Angeles County , California. It was quiet a sight to see, as many people did not get the chance to see this. We were lucky to see when it first started burning to when it ended. It started in the west and headed east pretty quick, we thought it was close in the sky, but we saw a plane pass right infront of it. That's when we knew that it was much further than we thought. And now reading comments it was a global event. Cheers to all those that got to see this, and have a story to tell.

White Ball of Light UK Rickmansworth

on 25th June @ approx 3am i saw a large white ball travelling very fast from right to left, i would say a SW direction. Thr trajectory was from a high point to low point and vanished before it got to the horizon. it lasted for about 3 secs. Shortly afterwards i also saw what appeared to be 3 shooting stars with tails following the same path.

Really interesting...

the wife and i were night

the wife and i were night fishing in derbyshire and saw something very similar it was so close, it actually lasted about 10seconds and was probably the biggest falling star type thing i have ever seen. 

Very bright meteor/spacejunk?

I am in the foothills of the coastal range in Oregon USA. On 6-26-2016 at approx 1:00 in the morning I saw a quite large burning object moving horizontal across the sky, it started to break apart and I lost sight behind the mountain range. It looked to be slow moving and was whitish yellow. I have seen many, many meteor showers but never anything so close and large.

Bright reddish orange light

My 2almost 3 year old son, his father and I were outside trying out his new toy when he asked me; momma, whats that? I looked and i immediately told his father to look at it. It was bright reddish orange and it was moving from northwest to southeast. We stood there and watched it go from moving very fast to slowing down quite a bit and then kind of flickered/got dimmer almost as if it were turning and then the light was gone. We stood there for seconds after but still no sign of it, it just disappeared.  I've never seen anything like it before and im really scared for our future. I wish I had answers, i wish i knew what it was that I just seen. I need answers so that I can sleep at night. We live in Lake Stevens, Wa

White light in the Sky UK

Hi, I'm from the UK, at 03:05 Today 25 June 2016 I saw a bright light, moving very quickly across the sky.  It travelled from Right to left in a slight arc, totally silently, it was the brightest white I have ever seen.  Seemed very large, sadly I only was able to see it for a few seconds before it disappeared. A very beautiful sight, sounds similar to the others reported here - I would be fascinated to find out more about this if anyone knows.

im in the South of the U.K., 20 miles South of Guildford.

White/green light in the sky

I saw it too! walked out of my house at 3am and saw it fall for about 2 seconds, which seemed long. I didnt see it go out as it disappeared behind some houses nearby. I'm so glad somebody else saw it. I was stunned for a few mins, never seen one so large and clear.  It had a green tinge to it.
