Meteorite

I just happend to glance at my window looking east at 12:16am on the 14 of December. And I saw a massive green asteroid go across the sky. A minute later I realised that I must have been whatching it through the clouds as that part of the sky was full of clouds, or it was below the clouds??. From Northumberland uk.

Beautiful

My husband came in the house to get me to look at the sky around 1:00 am in McMinnville TN. He stated he had seen several fallen stars and wanted me to see them as well. Exciting to say I seen several fallen stars myself. One of them was significantly bigger and brighter then the rest and was much faster but it was a beautiful show for sure. Not sure if this was a form of a meteor shower or if anyone else got to see this but it was amazing
