Actually, never mind ... this was a different one I saw! It was at 6:20pm (ish). Bright green ball of light.

Saw that

Hi. I just saw the same thing from Wellington and reported it also. Bright green ball of light.

Bright Flash in night sky

Around 3.29am looking northwest just saw a massive flash in the sky which left a long trail of 'star dust' visible to the naked eye which slowly dispersed like smoke does on a windy day! We could see it move slowly for quite a few moments through binoculars.

Deep green orb of light 16th April 2018 9pm

Compelled to look out my lounge room window and I saw this huge deep green orb of light flashing across the sky. I observed it for about 6 seconds and it seemed to be falling slowly toward the ground. It had a flashing sparkly green trail behind it as it went. It was beautiful. It was just above my neighbours roof so not that high up in the sky. Cammeray NSW Australia. April 16 2018 9pm

Green wave of light flashed across the sky

Wellington Central around 11pm last night I saw this wave of green light flash across the sky. It was like seeing a timelapse of the aurora lights and it only lasted for a second

Strange flying objects/things in the sky!!!!

For the first time in my life, I witnessed something strange flying in the sky. Around 10:30pm in la plata Maryland, I was dropping my sister off, and I had put down my window, as I looked up I seen something, clear enough to tell that’s unusual. It was flying slow enough for me to see that it was a lot of small objects/things flying together in a pack in a shape sort of like an butterfly wing, with some in the back also. I am still shook, and would never forget that moment!!!!

Visible red colored fire on the star

I am seeing a red color fire on the upper side of a star which is located toward the east side at round about 75 degree w.r.t earth surface here in Dara Adam khel, Pakistan. Sometime the size of flame seems like more in size than the star itself. The star is quite clearly visible. There is no nearby clearly visible star with it. Time is 10:45 pm. I have no such device to make photo or video.

Falling from sky

Was sorting on my porch when I saw what looked like a jet a first then as it moved on down you could clearly tell it was no jet it was wobbling and looked as if it was falling not going across the sky then went behind the trees

Flaming ball

Two nights ago half hour before midnight I did see the same. Round object like flaming ball. Not fire but color of light was as red, yellow, orange fire. Did sounds like plane but it wasn’t. Was out in garden with my dogs, so sorry didn’t have mobile to make video. First time in my life I did watch in something and thinking “wtf”!! It happens in Netherlands.

Bright light flying through sky

12 April 2018 - 8.50pm - We just saw a really bright, fast flying object north of Wanaka

I saw it too

Almost blue green flame on a northeast trajectory, it looked big.

White tail just above cloud cover at around 1 today, 8/4/1018

white single trail just above cloud cover going through sky today headed dead North. my younger son and my eldest son said it was black in colour and looked like a rocket, i saw the trail and we heard it, , I'm hoping a ANTI ICBM test........ wouldn't want it to be anything else...

Red flashing light above Dunedin.

Thursday 5th of April about 8.30-8.40pm I saw a bright red circle in the sky that stayed in place for a few minutes and then moved slowly directly above me. Sometimes it stayed red and then it would flash red then it totally disappeared like someone had turned a light switch off and then it appeared again in the same place but this time there were some green flashing lights as well. No noise at all. I watched it for a good 15 minutes and then it slowly moved away out of sight. I have never seen anything like it before. Totally different from photos of other UFO sightings. I had a friend with me at the time who also witnessed it.

Exploding shooting star

Happened to look up at the night sky about 9:20pm 6.4.18 and see a shooting star but it looked to appear as if it had exploded first then shoots across. Amazing! definitely made a wish on that one

Shooting star explodes

A light seen streaming across the sky from where I live would have been heading cambridge way then it seemed to explode and pieces fall then nothing, amazing site and very bright against the night sky time on my watch showed 9-25pm dated 06/04/2018

'shooting star"

At approx. 10:45am yesterday (Thus 5/4/18) I saw a 'shooting star' with a very brilliant white centre emitting pinkish sparks, and a long white tail. From the Omahu Rd area it appeared to be over Waimarama Beach way, heading down at around 30-40 degrees, and towards the south. A wonderful sight to behold for just 2-3 seconds ! Does anyone know what it actually was; space junk or meteor?


Saw a whitish yellow light falling directly downwards in the sky north of Chch. It looked close and large. The light extinguished just as it went below my neigbbours house.


Saw a bright burning object with a tail in the sky this morning just before 11am. Observed from Hastings area. Super stoked to have seen it!!!!

Light in sky

Walking on Marine Parade in Napier at approx 11am saw a burning object with a bright white trail. Visible for 2-3 seconds before disappearing. Trajectory heading south and visible above Cape Kidnappers.

Meteor Hastings NZ

Just before 11am I saw a small white ball with a flame in tow coming into hit ground in Hastings. I'm in the Akina area looking out towards Te Mata Peak. Rather exciting would love to go and find it however I'm working and it probably landed on someone's property.

Bright flash Auckland

Facing north looking out over Hauraki Gulf saw an orange g lash of light enter the atmosphere at about 2215 hours on Wednesday 4th of April.

Green ball of light

On March 29th late in the evening I saw a green ball with a long tail fly across the sky - it was slightly arched, didn't last very long and just vanished. It was travelling north to south. I live in Toronto, Ontario Canada

Green streak

Tauranga, New Zealand - 9:35PM - 01/04/2018 I was sitting inside a dimly lit livingroom when a bright light grabs my attention, through a west facing window a green streak falling on a slight angle from North to South. It was rapid and short-lived, but undeniable.

At first thought It was a Flare . . .

At 9.35pm in Nelson, New Zealand's, night sky I saw what most probably was a Meteor. Appeared to travel north to south and was a luminous bright green. A long cigar shape which appeared to disappear onto the ocean.

Green light falling over Tauranga

21.34pm, looking from Ohauiti towards the Kamais. Bright green light falling in an arc from North to south across the valley onto the ground. No further lights seen.

Falling white ember

At 11:22 in new jersey my mother and I saw a blazing white ember fall for a split moment then disappeared. What was that??

Bright amber!!!!

It is March 31st, 2018 at approx 2:00-2:05a.m. I just so happem to wake up to take my dog outside. Looked up in the sky. I live in Southern IL and was facing North. Looked up, thought at first it was a plane, but was lower than normal. However, as I looked it was on fire. It almost seemed as though an airplane was flying across and was on fire. The amber stayed at its' level, but finally disappeared. I am a little freaked out & praying it was not an airplane. That is why I got online to research. Do not know what to do.

Falling white ember

Located in central west Texas. At approx 10:10pm CST 03/30/2018 saw falling white ember-like light fall out of the night sky to the west. It was traveling in a southerly direction and was illuminated only briefly before disappearing on the horizon.

Fire ball

Last night at approximately one o'clock saw a bright object streak across sky at close range. Almost like a large glowing ember. I watched as it fell then disappeared.

meteor sighting 30/3/18

Looking towards the east from Takaka, Golden Bay, NZ, at 1.30am on 30 March 2018 I saw a large bright green object streaking across the sky from the north. It disappeared behind the Pikikiruna range. Diameter approx 1/4 the diameter of the moon.

I live in Riwaka, I was

I live in Riwaka, I was driving home from Marahau at almost exactly 1:30am this morning 1st April 2018, and I saw EXACTLY that.

Green-blue fireball

I live in Birmingham, Alabama. At about 6:30 this morning (CST) I saw what looked like a meteor streaking across the sky in a West-to-East direction. It seemed much bigger, or maybe just closer, than any meteors I have seen, and the blue-green color was so beautiful and unusual.

Green gas like explosion in sky

I too have seen that green looking explosion in the sky. Mine was in Pender County NC around 2001. It was approximately 7pm in August. Of course it was still very much daylight outside. I wasn't the only one who saw it. I was traveling down hwy 210. I pulled over as others were doing. We were all getting out of our cars to check this out. It seemed to slowly expand and was there in the sky for a very long long time. Kept checking all news sources and nothing was ever said about it. I wasn't the only one to report it but it was completely ignored. This was a huge area in the sky but you could tell it was extremely high up there. But nothing was ever reported about it. Awesome that media says what they want when they want just like the military and our government

strange object in western sky

for the past three nights we have seen an object in the sky round much a star but not a star and last night we saw a round circular object with red lights and it was going at a great speed toward the north and circled around and came back and circled the other object and then took off at a great speed and disappeared behind the mountains...

3/23/2018 between 9:00pm - 9:45pm North of Cartersville, GA US

There was a bright light going North East across the horizon. Almost like a comet, but the light was more yellow, and it was a lot closer. There was no sound, and I had heard nothing on the news about viewing the international space station or satalite debris. Also the moon came up, on the opposite side of the house, typically where it is around 6:00am-7:00am
