Bright blue lihht lit up sky near Creston, ohio 11/27/2015 arpun

Was digging stuff out of shed for Christmas when I noticed the sky pointing towards North West was all  lit up in blue. My brother n law seen it also. It happened for few seconds, went away, then did it again for few seconds again then it stopped. Weird but beautiful. Almost like how a police car's blue siren light would light up the night except I have never known any police lights to light up a huge partnof the sky. X-files, the truth is out there lol

i was laying in bed at and I look out my window at 00:30 and I see a bright light at first I thought it was a shooting start but it's moving very,very slow. As I look out my window at 00:40 it's still there and hasnt moved much but I can see it moving as I watch it. it has a kind of flashy effect and and orange outline as if it's projecting colour into some of the Sky. i understand that Planes flash but this definitely does not look like a plane. also at one point I thoight i saw a few things being 'spat' from this thing. im a little bit worried:/im i England.

I also saw it in Orlando Florida

it was green and didn't last long (Seconds) The light looked like it was falling from the sky.  Not a shooting star (Too large and slow from my experience anyway).  Not fireworks either.  Strange and pretty.

Last evening, 11/24/2015 at approx. 8:40pm EST, I was driving up Rt 271 N in Northfield, Ohio and saw a bright fire ball falling quickly from straight ahead and everyone ahead of me in traffic began to hit their breaks on the highway because of the sight of it. Within seconds of this visual, it disappeared. I have never seen anything like it - amazing sight!

A bang in the sky.

Last night, around 12:00 am - 1:00 am (PST) I heard a deep rumbling noise in my room and when I opened my eyes I saw a very bright light that then faded away. I'm from L.A.

Did anyone see this tonight in Chicago area?

We were in the car on the highway in the Schaumburg, Illionois area on November 24 at approx 9:30 pm Central Time when a flash of light appeared across the lower sky. It had a green ball of light with a short tail and lasted for only about 3 seconds before completely disappearing. Even though we were near O'Hare airport, it was clear that it was not a plane but something more like a meteor that seemed to be very, very close. Did anyone else see this?

I was in Schaumburg as well

I was in Schaumburg as well and I can assure you, you are not alone! I saw this as well and told the person I was with and they did not believe me. I have not seen anything like it before, and it was about the same time I experienced as you did. Great to know Im not the only one!


I saw it. In Lake Villa / Lindenhurst area heading west on Grand Ave. It was 9:45pm. It was huge. Ball of fire and it was dark in the center as it burned out. Almost seemed like i could tell if was a giant rock on fire. Incredibly low.

Green streak on the sky

My son and I heard a loud rumbling/booming noise around the same time last night.  Was this heard in the WNC area?


Anyone else hear anything?

Rock on fire

I saw it too. 945pm. Looked like a giant rock on fire as it burned out. 

Green light

Driving home on A9 in Highlands of Scotland,UK  just east of the Cromarty Bridge tonight around 7pm when a green ball with orange tail  shot down at what looked like a 45 degree angle right to left (south to north). Thought at first it might be fireworks but to the south of the road is the coast. Also no boats visible for it to be a flare. It was pretty exciting!

I just seen two lines headin towards north uk in Northampton sky

The lines was like trial behind plane but there were two next to each other one little bit behind the first heading firstly kind of down the ground like rockets..then they changed directions.. I would rather say this were rockets.. :(

Unusual ?flickering star?

last evening around 10pm had phone call from friend who said to look out in sky eastern sky. Went out and easily saw what she meant. Was a very bright flickering unusually shaped ?star. Appeared to be shaped like a giant firefly and seemed to have color red & white. Watched for several minutes. Seemed to stay in same area but flickered not like a normal star! I tried to take pic with phone but did not work. 

Orange fire ball

Not sure weather it is a meteor or a comet or something else.

Saw a fast moving orange fireball in the sky just a few mins ago (22:40 IST) for about 10 seconds or so. Later it disappeared in the clouds. This is the first time I ever saw any such thing in sky. Please let me know what it is in case anyone figures it out. Curious to know.

Bangalore, India.

The Himalaya Sky

Likewise it was the 24th of nov 2015.The time was 9:33 pm IST,himalaya region 5000m above sea level ,Arunachal Pradesh .There was a loud bang in the sky... I woke up and went out to the balcony and saw streak of cloud stretching quite far in the sky. The sound of the bang rattled the windows of many buildings more than 20kms on its way.Was that an asteroid?Many were saying that it was a jet.But I don't agree because a jet doesn't explode that loud that the sound waves will travel more than 20 kms and rattle the windows of many buildings.It was like the asteroid event that rattled the locals in some other places.So what was that?


Last night, November 23, 2015, on my way to work, in Nancy, Kentucky, I seen a multicolor fireball with a tail falling from the sky, lasted 3-5 seconds....was amazing!


Wonder if this is what I saw just a bit north of you in Indiana


Indiana fireball; south of Indy; NW bound on route 74

Saw a massive slow moving fireball apparently descending perpendicular to the horizon (straight vertical descent) approximately 7:20-7:30 pm EST (USA) 11-23-15. I was driving northwest on route 74 when it became hypervisible. Hard to miss. Key note here is that the object was SLOW moving! I was very worried! The object apparently broke up near the apparent/visble horizon. Not sure if this was reported otherwise.

No idea if this was military, some flying vehicle, satellite, meteor or meterorite.


If anybody saw this/knows what this was, please post a response.




We saw something very similar


We live in LaSalle, Ontario in Essex County and on our drive home within the same time frame, we also saw this and I've been trying to find some verification about what it was.

Here, it seemed to make a dramatic drop at a 45 degree angle before it disappeared.

If you find out what it was, please post your findings.




Greenish Light Fall from the Sky

I saw the same thing. I was driving east on I-80 in Northwest Indiana. I saw it again tonite. My son was with me.
