www.rt.com... I've seen quite a bit of these over the past 5 years,anybody have any explanations or theories?

That was really neat. I had the good fortune of seeing a very slow moving fireball like that sitting on the hood of my car one evening in college. It's weird. If you aren't looking ar the sky you will probably miss it. But when you catch it seems that 5 seconds turns into 15.

I didn't notice if it blew up at the end of not. Would that one qualify as a bolide?

Perhaps the colors are from the different metals that make up tons of space debris. a reply to: zeroeffect

Basically. Meteorites with green glows have a lot of copper in them.

Like a spectrograph chart of elements, the colors in bolides are significant to determining their make up…


The visible light produced by a meteor may take on various hues, depending on the chemical composition of the meteoroid, and the speed of its movement through the atmosphere. As layers of the meteoroid abrade and ionize, the color of the light emitted may change according to the layering of minerals. Colors of meteors depend on the relative influence of the metallic content of the meteoroid versus the superheated air plasma, which its passage engenders:[26]

Orange-yellow (sodium)
Yellow (iron)
Blue-green (magnesium)
Violet (calcium)
Red (atmospheric nitrogen and oxygen)

What color would a gold meteor be?

copper turns green but the interesting thing is those who saw it falling said they never heard it land/crash

That meteor looks super close and the video was actually quite clear but they said they never heard it crashing down or landing. Any idea's on that?

I would tend to say...that a fully functional alien starship [Foo Fighter], would not display a fiery tail in our atmosphere, as this bolide or piece of space debris apparently does --- Though I still can't explain why a nighttime aerial, fiery Foo Fighter, does not leave fiery flame tails in an atmosphere.

Probably the size of a pebble, high copper content, and very high up in the atmosphere, too high to hear any sonic booms on the ground, it will have burnt out quick.

Amazing sight.

copper or nickel content will do this. it's actually fairly common. there was no crash or explosion cause it probably burned up in the atmosphere or skimmed the upper atmosphere and skipped off into space somewhere.

I've seen them fire engine red too. no joke two years ago at 12:30am on Christmas morning. watching the sky on my patio. look up and coincidentally see a red bolide cross a part if the sky. thought it was an awesome Christmas omen. a bolide impersonating Santa.

Did you ask it why it was sitting on the hood of your car?

Yah, usually these objects are tens of miles over our head when we first see them. Their sudden appearance gets our attention because of the speed of light, any sound they make would take a lot longer to reach our ears. If big enough this does happen, like in Russia…

People came outside to film the smoke trail for some time before >>> WHAM! What we hear are reports, sonic booms from deceleration through the sound barrier. Check your volume…[yvid]

Nice find!

I would love to see that in person.

No. I didn't. But the 12 pack of Bud Light I was drinking did. It told the then half empty 12 pack it was just passing through and not to be alarmed. Isn't that a strange thing for a fireball to say?

P.S. Thanks for pointing that out. It was funny. (Not being sarcastic)

I was floating on a boat once, when a giant fireball came flying over our heads. It was green, extremely low angle, maybe 15-20 degrees of horizon. My sighting blew me away, ive never seen such an amazing fireball before. The green was so vivid, and the speed that of the Fireball, I saw, wasnt very fast. Kinda crazy, about 10 witnesses to that event

Gold which is a transition metal when hot will burn an orange to a white flame if taken to the highest temperatures.

That's not too unusual. Meteorites can be very bright without being very big. They can look closer than they actually are, and they can land hundreds of miles away or burn up or just bounce back into space. Finding a meteorite right after it crashes is actually very rare.

I'm in Argentina. I missed it
(got home at 8:30 PM, and this was apparently around 21:30, I was indoors)

I missed my one time to shine in ATS
