comet/meteor in sky

Yes, I have some pictures. It looked like a comet with a tail than slowly came downward in the sky and then disappeared "behind" a cloud. It was about 7:05 pm over Colorado Springs. It was fascinating to watch and I have it pictured in reference to the crescent moon. What a beautiful experience!

What was flying through the sky 09/23/2017 @ around midnight

Yorba Linda CA What seemed to be a meteor, looking into the sky West, I aw a small bright orange light ball, it was moving quickly and it began to grow larger and began to leave a debris trail emitting from the upper and lower parts of the orange light ball. I ran inside and called my friend to come out and see, upon returning the light had grown the size of a tennis ball and the debris trail was 10-15 times the size, it traveled in the sky leaving a trail for at least 60 seconds or more then poof and vanished.

Me too!

I saw this as well. I also got video although my phone didn't pick it up as well as I had hoped. Any reports as to what it was? I've seen fireballs of all sorts and once (no joke) saw Venus take off as the Sun was rising above the horizon. Anyway, curiosity has got the best of me.

meteor sighting in Hamlin NY on 9/22

I was driving down the road in Hamlin NY with a friend when a white and green flash came shooting by. It seemed very close and at first we thought it was stray fireworks. But there were no other flashes or colors just this one. it only lasted a couple of seconds and seem to burn up.

Bright light in sky

I live in Calgary Alberta looking east I see a very bright white light to big to be a star around 430 am does anyone else see this and possibly know what it is

Star flared and then vanished on 24.09.17

I live in Birmingham England. This morning at around 3am I was still awake and in my garden smoking. A very bright star caught my eye and as I looked it grew incredibly bright, outshining every other star in the sky and then it seemed to glow brightly one last time and literally just dimmed to nothing and disappeared, Using the app Night Sky it looks to be around where Polaris is located, don't suppose anyone else saw it too?

something white moving in the sky

I'm from Kerala. I saw something small white thing passing through the sky. At first I thought it would be my imagination. but after few minites I saw two more of it. Is this the time for meteor. It was very small, doesn't had much glow and was unable to see if you don't gaze at the sky.

Orange circle

I just seen like around less than an hour ago, a Orange circle type of light in the sky for about 5 to 7 seconds then it dissapeared and after a second I seen some type of smoke, was trying to film it but as I grab my phone and turn on the camera which was pointing at my face instead towards the sky.... i missed it. It was like a mini moon orange like one of those summer nights type.... and it was surrounded by white light on top and bottom as well, moving very fast. I'm in South central los angeles California and I seen the event on the south direction like going towards San Pedro towards the shore..... it was amazing !! Never seen anything like it in my life even asked ppl around the store and tacos stand if they didn't seem such thing. Good thing it was 3 ppl of us so I'm not nuts. And I don't do drugs!!! Lol

Object in sky

Just saw a white object in sky with 2 red tails. It's was going slow, maybe as fast an an airplain. It wasn't completely straight. After a while it seems to burn out and disappear. For a few seconds the white part returned and then left again.

Me too!

I saw the exact same thing on the 22nd but I am from Niagara Falls on the Canadian side... it stretched across the sky. I was outside using my phone and the light caught my eye... I looked up in the sky and saw the MASSIVE green ball in the sky... at first I thought it was a "shooting star".. but the size of this green ball was like nothing I've ever seen. It was much larger in mass than anything I've ever seen in the sky.. it disappeared behind the houses, a few seconds later I heard a huge "THUD" from wherever it crashed/landed.. it sounded like it hit the earth.. it looked so close to me in the sky.. but the THUD I heard was almost so silent so that I don't think anybody would have noticed if not paying attention.. the sound of it falling to the earth sounded like it was so far away but it actually looked so close.

Strange lights

Around 630pm tonight my 4 year old daughter and I witnessed what seemed to be a very bright reddish orange light which also appeared to be a star at first glance but it illuminated more and more then suddenly there appeared 2 lights above and below one another they then shifted side by side each other slowly drifted away 1 right the other left and dissapeared - I presumed it could've been some fancy firework display - Ive never seen such an event. I tried to get footage but what I managed to capture did not give it any true justice to what was actually seen.
