ufo

i saw same thing 1.45 am from Tawa. orange ball of light heading fairly fast no sound going nrth to sth went for about 10secs then seamed to explode, i could see flames like a firework,but this was deffenatly no manmade firework

Fireball

Second time I see the fireball...long orange, wide light, no moise, lasted about 3 seconds, up high then went down, but dissapeared before mid horizon towards north, in southeastern massachusetts about 3 weeks ago, so about middle of September 2010 at around 11 pm. The first time, it was at the same location, by the river, but it was so much more closer, and going east to west. My boyfriend was with me as well, and we both went like "wow, what was that?". He is not into UFOs, he is a doctor, so he always finds an explanation for everything -but that time, it took him some time to decide it may have been a meteor. And I was like "yeah right, that low and close? it could have made the news by now, don't you think? ".

Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to see a few things... the most peculiar
was a dark triangle with 3 big round green lights, one in each corner, stationary in the sky, very low, extremely low, just about a house as I was nearing my home. Too bad I was driving and starting to take a turn, otherwise I would have stopped to observe it. I am 100% sure, it was not an identified craft as we know it.

ball of fire (?)

On my way in to work at 5am (Austin TX, travis county) as I drove north bound on IH35 coming up on the overpass of 290 I saw a lage white ball with flames at the end of it coming down about to hit ground, this was a very clear sighting as it was not far from IH 35. this was west of 35 as I drove norh bound. as it hit ground I saw a white flash which was low to the ground.

Big bright unusual object in Southern Skies

Noticed it on 5 October 2010, between 10 and 10.30 pm, South-West of Riverton, Southland: a big bright yellow/white 'object', too big to be a star, but I'm not an expert. It disappeard behind the horizon (hills), in the same direction, after 10.30 pm. It didn't seem round shaped, and at times I saw a tiny little red light. There is no airtraffic in this region, and certainly not at night. Or is there?

red glows

Yes I saw the glowing balls on the evening of 10/2 around 10-11pm. We were at a sports event so at first I thought it was one of those fireworks that goes up and slow and then bursts. Then I was thinking, yeh it's moving pretty dang slow. It didn't disappear for a couple minutes and I had thought if it was a satalite, they don't glow. It was awesome and so weird at the same time. I saw 2 that night about an hour apart.

Colorful shooting star

My wife and I had just entered I-75 northbound in Clarkston MI, when we both spotted a shooting star that looked like it was dropping straight down from the sky. It flashed red, white, yellow and blue. It was large enough in the sky that at first my wife and I had thought it was an airplane. It was traveling northwest at around 23:30 hours on 10/2/10.

Fire in the sky?

My husband and I have seen this twice now in the past month, and I am excited and intrigued to find that many others have also seen the same thing, or at least similar all over the world.

First on September 9 at around 11pm, and second tonight at around 8pm. We are in the UK and both times the objects were moving in an East to West direction.

As for what they were, it's hard to describe! They looked (to me) like something on fire, floating gently across the sky not too fast and not too slow but very beautiful and bright orange. And each time, they went a certain distance and then dimmed until completely gone.

We would really like to know what these are! They're amazing!

bright orange lights over Auckland

tonight (26/09/2010) I saw two bright orange/red lights travel across the sky in Auckland. They were very bright, quite like a meteorite but without the speed. At first one was faster than the other then the second one caught up and they maintained uniform separation before fading out approximately 10seconds later. They travelled in a NW to SE direction, VERY bright to begin with but not enough to illuminate the sky. Was pretty freaky, too fast to be a plane or satellite. They faded out without any burst or an breakup just went dim all of a sudden then disappeared.

26/09/2010 I saw two bright

26/09/2010 I saw two bright orange lights travel across the sky in Auckland also but moving in an upwards direction...what was it?

Red/Orange light

Saturday...September 25,2010 Ranchester, Wyoming.

I saw at 11:02pm a strange slow moving red/orange light. At first I thought is was a shooting star, but it was to slow. This object moved in a down upward direction, east to west. 3 seconds after I saw another object just to the left where the first object began...same color but smaller move up and vanish within 2 seconds.

Strange lights

East Coast New Zealand- Gisborne. 8pm just saw what looked like a satelite moving high across the sky ...a small area away from it another light seemed to light up bright (like a flash) and then disappear as did the moving light. Is this space junk burning up?
Very curious.

UK - firey object

Driving home through the New Forest, Hampshire at about 23:50 hours I saw an object going across the sky. It was an orange/brown in colour and had a smoke like trail behind it, it was travelling at speed (about that of an small aircraft, and the same height as a cesna type aircraft). It was travelling from a south - north direction. It was an incredibe sight and it was a shame I lost sight of it (due to driving!!). Incredible!

Last night "Sep 14, 2010

Last night "Sep 14, 2010 Anaheim Area" I was walking home from my friends house a block down around 1:00AM, I saw in total 4 big bight balls dropping from the sky on after the other.Not sure if i saw color happened very quickly and obviously wasn't expecting it. was amazing not sure what is was though. any ideas?

Hi, I saw a bright orange

Hi,

I saw a bright orange light this evening 11/9/2010 from Romsey Hants at 20:40 travelling from the west towards the east, appearing to dissappear before reaching the horizon. Was on a similar track and speed as the Internation Space Station often is but the websites for that show that would have been 30 minutes earlier. It also appeared lower than an ISS and much brighter and orange. I could not hear a sound associated with it. Any info ??

Meteorite sighting USA

Streak of bright orange light sighted at approx. 11:25 p.m, EST. on 08 Sept. 2010 in the sky right above Western Massachusetts, USA.
It was traveling Southwest. Only lasted a second or so then appeared to have burned up. I was taking my dog out, and thinking about two asteroids that had a close encounter with the earth earlier that day, and looked up at just right moment.
Weird coincidence.

strange aircraft moving east/west (UK) on 3.Sept 2010 at 21.10

I saw a deltoid object - like a stealth bomber on its wing tip. It was brilliant white - like it was white hot and behind it was fire and the whole thing was moving in a glow of fire.

I was looking out of a south facing window on a clear night. At a certain point, above a tree - the object was side-on to me and I could see that the fire was in a shield-like shape with cresselations (or feathering, like on an arrow) at the top - and as I peered out the corner of the window, I clearly saw a white deltoid shape ahead of the fire which made me realise it was some kind of aircraft. When I first saw it I thought it was an aircraft on fire or perhaps some kind of flying bomb, but with the cresselations at the top I felt that the fire was more likely to be a controlled emission from the aircraft. I think the fire was like the orange of street lights - still and powered by electricity.

Other sightings here are easily explained as meteor showers, but I don't think this fits with that explanation at all. Sorry if it's on the wrong web-site but I'd like to know what I've seen and whether anybody might know what it is. I've never seen anything like it before, though I have seen a stealth bomber flying - it doesn't have an exhaust like I saw.

strange aircraft moving east-west Friday September 3rd 2010

I am now satisfied that what I saw was a Chinese lantern. I think the wind must have caught it and it was flying on its side. There has been a lot of strong wind over the London area lately.

Driving home from a friends

Driving home from a friends house on Thursday 02 Sept 2010 (approx 10pm), in Blenheim NZ, heading towards the east I saw a bright burning fireball looking thing that was visable for about 2 -3 seconds before it burned out. I have never seen anything like it before and was relieved to have someone with me as I would have thought I would have been seeing things! Can anyone advise what this may have been?

Green shooting star

On Friday 3rd Sept. 2010 I went to bed at aprox.10.50 pm. My bedroom window (37.40.48 s.175.57.52 e. elv.160m.) faces due east and just then there was a very bright green shooting star like occurrence.
It went in a descending arc from left to right, ENE. to E., from about 30deg. down to about 10deg. above the horizon.
The light looked about the same size and intensity as a very pistol green flare but much to far away to be a flare of any kind.

Bright Light Moving And Fading In Sky !

This has me quiet puzzled to what it can be, i have seen it on 3 occasions moving in different directions and my friend and his wife on another 2 occasions. I can only explain it to be like a satellite or star but gradually getting very bright and fading to nothing after a minute or so. But it seems to be a lot lower then any other satellite or star.

I have seen a lot of satellite's moving on a clear night and they are quiet fast compared to this 'thing' and they never suddenly get brighter then fade into nothing.

any info on what it could be would be great. thanks Craig, UK

dancing/streaking red lights?

ive never seen anything too special in the night sky except for northern lights one time and dont have much experience like some of you stargazers but! what i saw last night in the sky over burnaby BC was unlike anything ive ever heard of until i read some posts. way out in the distance like a very far star me and 2 other ppl witnessed this strange physics defying movement. hard to see red glows or stars dancing and streaking and even flashing in the sky randomly. seemed to move like bugs but were up in the sky not below. sometimes theyd dance around in circles with eachother but mostly just zig zagged individually, would move up,down,right,left so fast and would dissapear then come back. some would just streak like a shooting star. like other ppl have said, kind of like a lazer pointer but with flashes and very distanced. i only saw mabey 10-15 of them over the span of 30mins and not all at once but another person i was with was freaked out and said they saw a lot more. does anybody know what this could have been????.......i thought mabey an illusion of some sort, im kind of perplexed i dont buy into UFOs and all that crap very easily

Alien lights in sky?

Were driving down the road on the 21/08/2010 between 20.00-21.00. Saw about 20 red\goldish lights bit bigger then a star would appear. They were lined up like the lights of an airports landing strip. Me and my girlfriend stopped to take a look and saw they were moving very slowly. And then suddenly saw little lights coming out of the bigger ones. (1little light per big light) in about 5mins time as they were moving they just vanished. And there was nothing in the sky. This happened near waverly in pretoria South africa. Would like to know if anyone picked something up on a radar maybe?

see my story in may 2010 my

see my story in may 2010 my comment here in CT,perhaps we saw something similar?

ovnis

hello every body, i'm from Brazil, and i would like to speak about a litlle star that i sow yesterday. i live in SÃO LUIS-MA, and yesterday in the night i saw a moving star first it was going slowly in the sky like a star, but it was moving like a air bus, only a light...others people saw, my daughter, my son, my boyfriend and a frind of my daugther.

Meteorite over Lower South Island

Saw a large green meteorite streaking from south to north at 7.40pm Sunday 22/ 08/2010.
It was only visible for a short period before burning up.
No sound was heard but a trail was visible in its light.

Meteor

I too saw a bright green meteor visible at 7:37 on the 22/8/10. I was driving just North of Kaikoura heading south. Yay, I wasn't imagining it!

Meteorite near Matamata

Thursday 19th August 2010, approx 6:15am. Driving south on SH26 between the intersection with SH27 and Matamata. What I saw was a streak line of white light. At the leading point of the streak of light was a white 'dot' slightly bigger than width of the streak. It traveled from right to left in my vision, roughly NW to SW and was just above the tree line, say 40 degrees. I felt it was quite close, maybe a 1000m away but these things are probably further away than you think. I'm guessing what I saw was a meteorite. It was going far to fast to be an aircraft and too close to be a satellite. I did think about the possibility of being a reflection of another light in the glass but it was too clear and distinct for that. Wikipedia say 500 meteorites reach the earth every year so at a rate 1-2 a day its a fairly remote chance I was at the right place at the right time. I can't make any other explanation.

strange lights

same here,i was getting cows in @ around 6am,and saw very similar objects in sky,thought i was tired untill the bolt of white light streaking downwards really took my attention...then a bright white light lit up the sky.
im no weirdo,but ive been seeing these things in the sky for several weeks,plenty of activity.

Meteor shower and moving stars?

Okay so last night (august 12, 2010) me and a few friends decided to go out and see this supposed meteor shower. We started down at the lake on the pier and didnt see anything at all... at around 1030 we went back up to my friends house and decided to go lay in the field by her house and see if we could see anything there.. Any ways we saw a whole bunch of meteors, big ones small ones, ones with huge red smoke trails. It was amazing and im really glad that i got to see what i did. After that around 11pm we were still laying there looking at the sky hoping to see another meteor and me and ashley both noticed this moving star, it would zig zag and go up and down and every direction. I know what satalites and planes look like that was definatly not either of those things. There was one and then another appeared and they would like dance with each other and then disappear and come back again. We watched them for a good 20 minutes and then gave up and came to the conclusion that our eyes were probably just bugging out or something. On the walk back to her house me and her and her boyriend and his friend all had this over whelming feeling we were being watched, i know a star cant see you but i just thought it was creepy.

Same thing!

I had a very similar experience on Friday August 13th, at around 11:00pm. My sister and our nephew were sitting out on our dock in Bobcaygeon, Ont., watching the meteor shower, when we saw a star (?) start to move. It appeared to be a slow moving meteor, and faded in and out of brightness as well as stopping and starting in its trajectory, suddenly flaring to at least twice its size. It didn't "go out", and rather kept moving on its path in a slow fashion, fading to nothing after about 45 seconds.
It was very, very creepy, and we went in soon after that, because in 20 years of watching the August meteor show, I've never, ever seen anything even remotely close to that.

Orange bright lights

The other day at around 10 30 pm. We were sitting outside at a local pub. We hadn't even had our first drink when these 2 orange bright lights apeared. They seemed to be about 2 feet from each other traveling South East to West in the sky. It was the wierdest thing. But just as they disapeared, there were 2 more. The same distance apart from each other, just like the first ones.
People had there cameras out and were filming. No one seemed to know what they had just witnessed.
We live in a small town in Northern Ontario, and for us this was quite something. I haven't seen anything like this before and have no idea what they were.
Does nyone have any idea what we saw?

orange burning ball in sky

in tadley hampshire on 12 august we went into our hottub to gaze at the meteor shower we saw the usual shooting stars across the sky but at approx 10.30pm we saw a bright orange burning ball coming from the north from the direction of aldermaston heading south initially i thought maybe it was after burners from a fighter jet but it made no noise and im sure it wasnt a chinese lantern as it was traveling too fast, ive googled at there appears to have been alot of sighting of orange burning balls but no confirmed explanation, love to find out what it was!

yosemite shooting stars

on the night on july 31, 2010 I was camped 9 miles from the road in Yosemite National
Park, at waterwheel falls. I saw several "normal" shooting stars, 2 unusually bright yellow/green streaks, and 3 ridiculously long bright orange ones with slight flashes at the end. Yosemite tends to have dark skies and it is easy to see shooting stars there, but these were the brightest and most impressive I have ever seen.

bright red light

At around 9:40 last night August 1st in Maine, USA I saw a bright red burst sort of looking like an explosion but then fell down a bit and then disappeared. It was bright and very high up in the sky. Could it have been a meteor?

On July 29,2010 I had a

On July 29,2010 I had a similiar experience. I think it might be a fireball, but I will speak with an expert at some time. I will let you know when I learn of anything.:)

Orange/yellow Fireball x2

Ely, Cambridgeshire, UK. Last night around 2315 I saw two bright orange/yellow fireball type objects darting across the sky in the same direction, west to east, at approximately the same speed. They did seem to fade until they neared the moon. They looked like two giant embers from a fire as they flickered the orange yellow color. Did anyone else witness this?

Hi I seen the the same

Hi

I seen the the same sighting in the USA on August 11, 2010. Did you ever find out what it was.

Last night 14/08/10 I saw 18

Last night 14/08/10 I saw 18 of these all cross over my house in Huntingdon.

Burning orange coulour in southern sky

31 July 2010 at 9.16pm did anyone see a bright orange object cross the sky in an arc from the west toward the east. Example from over queenstown towards Timaru.

A couple nights ago on the

A couple nights ago on the east coast of Florida at about ten o'clock i saw what looked like the beginning of a shooting star. Then it turned orange and red and then it lit up bright yellow twice. I don't know what it was, but the sky seems very active lately. What I saw arched as well, so maybe I saw something similiar to what u saw. It may b space junk burning up in the atmosphere or a fireball, but I'm not really sure.

fireball in Texas sky 7/29/10

Last night (July 29, 2010) at around 11:00pm central time my husband and I saw a bright light in the sky. It looked greenish to us and only lasted a few seconds - but it was very big and bright, lighting up the whole sky. Was it a meteor? Did anyone else see it?

Fireball

Sometimes around 11 pm, on July 29 2010, my son and I were leaving New Braunfels, TX, headed east on I-10. We were between New Braunfels and exit 638. My son and I both saw what looked like a gigantic rainbow shooting star in the sky. It almost looked like fireworks, as the tail changed from a red to green color. From our perspective on the highway, the size of it (including the tail) was almost as big as the full moon that night around that time. We saw it in upper center portion of my windsheild. We were amazed, and both said at exactly the same time, "OMG! Did you see that?"
So, I did a little internet research, but I wanted to confirm my sighting with an expert. Today, I went to the planetarium and described what we saw to an expert. She said that it was a fireball....This is the first place that I have found and reports similiar to our experience. please let me know if you hear of any other sightings of it.

Fireball Reports

If you witnessed this event, then please fill out a fireball report form for the American Meteorlogical Association (link is at the bottom of this post). Maybe we can learn more about what we saw in the sky on July 29th . As of today, 5 people (including myself) have reported this fireball.

Link to 2010 fireball sightings: http://www.amsmeteors.org/fireball/fireball_log2010.htm

That's really weird cause

That's really weird cause that same night in Florida I saw something similiar to that, but it was orange and red.

fireball observed in Houston, Texas 7/29/10

Yes - Towards the end (just before exiting our field of view) it very briefly burned a reddish color from our perspective. We've never seen a meteor burning up bright green like that, capable of significantly lighting up the entire sky. We have been checking the news and scouring the internet for more information because it was just so odd to us, and definitely the largest object we've seen burning up in Earth's atmosphere. Perhaps it was just space junk... Anyway, It was pretty low in the night sky - appearing near the horizon here - so we wondered if it actually struck the earth or exploded just before impact. Has anyone heard any reports of a meteorite impact or explosion prior to impact? We would love more information - or even to find a photograph or video of the occurrence. It was quite coincidental too, as we had just watched a science program earlier in the evening on the cosmos, current research at Keck, and astrobiology. We had to laugh about it....

Well, on thecoast of Florida

Well, on thecoast of Florida I looked out over the ocean and saw red and orange flash across the sky. What I saw was low in the sky as well as yours. Before it went out it blew up twice. I think what I saw maybe similiar to what u saw, but I an going to do sone research on it. It may have been a fireball, but I'm not sure. What time did u c that, cause what I saw happened around 10 o'clock at night.

time

We saw it around 11 pm central time.

Yes I too have been trying to

Yes I too have been trying to find out what I saw. but i havnt found anything yet as well. If u find out what it is do tell me.:)
