No sound and looked like it was going to land across the road. No impact noise or vibrations felt.

Was it a meteor??

Driving home from Salisbury towards Southampton (UK) at about 11.30pm we saw the most amazing white light with a tinge of green cross the sky in front of us. It was so vivid and bright, like a firework streak but much more intense.

burning object in tje sky over the islands in grand isle vermont

9/23

My husband was just coming in from work around 11:15 pm and said Layne come out now!! Looked up and saw an orange ball that was traveling across the sky at a steady pace...then it did about an 80 degree dart to the right then we lost it in the trees!! it was so weird.: we tried to make sense of it but we were still left with a weird feeling and questions!

What was that!?

As I was outside with my pittie for his evening deuce I noticed something unfamiliar in the night sky.
I usually have my phone on me to help pass the time because this dog takes forever but this time I didn't have it which is totally random for me. So I began looking up at the tree line before remembering about a constellation I usually look for if there's nothin good on reddit. So I begin to scan the night sky from left to right above the tree line moving up to the point that my head is all the way back. That's when I see something that startled me out of my right peripherals. I don't usually get frightened by things up there cuz I've seen plenty of shooting stars and satellites in my day.
Anyways, as I'm standing there in the dark I feel like someone turned a light on. It got super bright and I felt the hair raise on the back of my neck. At this point I lose track of time in complete open mouth amazement.
Seeing this thing light up the sky I can't help but think it's a shooting star... wait no it's too bright that can't be a shooting star. How is this thing this bright for this long and it's begun to get brighter and eventually covers the span of my view right to left where it eventually splits into pieces and the brightness fizzles out into the dark. Woah...
What did I just see? a meteor? Or comet or whatever u call it? Something entering the atmosphere?
That was by far the brightest thing I've ever seen in the night sky. It practically lit up the whole field out back.
I remember gasping and saying out loud, "Oh damn! What is that!? Woah... holy smokes... that's insane...!"
I'd say it took about 3-4 seconds to sweep across the sky which felt like an eternity. Nobody else was out there with me. I even looked around to see if someone else had encountered the same sight, but nothin.
Sometimes things like this sound way more intense when reading it but honestly my words don't do this sighting justice. That was crazy.

I have never seen anything like it. Defo it wasnt a falling star. I thought it was maybe plane or meteor.

Green lights?!

Hi there,

today I woke up about 5:00am to a noise that sounded like glass vibrating, straight after this the sky turned green for about 20sec. In that time all the birds in the nabhourhood woke up at the same time and started chirping uncontrollibly. I felt like the world was coming to an end and was frightend for my life! This was rather strange and I felt like I was losing my mind. If I am just nuts or there was something to this please let me know.

thanks
