Sounds like we had a meteor inbound via NE Scotland tonight:

"Police in Aberdeen and Inverness say they have been receiving a large number of calls about a big, bright flash seen in the sky over Scotland.

People have taken to social media to report seeing a blue, white or green light, with some saying they also heard a rumbling sound.
There is speculation it could have been a meteor or may have been a sonic boom.

Some reports suggested the light may have been seen as far south as Berwickshire in the Scottish Borders"

www.bbc.co.uk...

If reports are as far as Berwick from the NE of Scotland then thats one heck of a flash.. A good 300 + miles

news.stv.tv...

Twitter reports are stating massive flash of light then 10 seconds plus of booms. Alarms going off, cars, houses, ground shaking.

Braemar in the NE of Scotland lit up like daylight.

Nothing noticed here in the Lothians.

yeah i saw this on the evening news looked pretty cool.

We had one a few years ago as well, I was fortunate enough to be able to witness it but it just burnt up in the atmosphere no huge flash of light like that

It is a shame the video ended before the sound came, I would imagine that somebody could calculate the height/distance at least if it had run on to the end.

More frequent worldwide, not so much for Scotland. Few good US ones lately and one in Hong Kong not long ago was a decent one.

I seen a great one many years ago (have a post in ATS somewhere about it). Thought it was a fighter jet flying over me very low, looked up and saw a huge ball of fire blasting across the Sky.

Thanks for the heads up about this. Hope we aren't running into some kind of dust/debris ring, you never know what will come down!

FIfe? nice!

Thats a decent sized flash then, Aberdeen to Fife.

Lets see if someone locates the epicentre, we could have had a similar event to Russia a few years back if it came in at a different trajectory. Thats if its confirmed as a meteor.

Man these people work fast. Here is a frame by frame, no analysis, you can just about see the meteor.

Indeed. I bet those clever folks can combine the video and any noise recordings and work out how big it was, I will keep an eye on this.

There will be better videos I imagine. I am wondering though how difficult it must be to capture a meteor on camera. If not for dash cams and security cams...it must be almost impossible really.
