My guess is more cameras and ease of spreading information.

At the same time it does seem a little weird.

Then why are they suddenly becoming mainstream "newsworthy" if they happen so often ?

That's what puzzles me


Many years ago the experts all said this type of observation was RARE. Not what they say now. Although a sy watching fool, I went a whole lifetime without seeing any but the regular shooting star high in the atmosphere.

In 2012 I saw two on successive weeks one white and one blue magnificent, huge bright and disappeared only because of the trees, so they came all the way down.

Personally I think they are indeed increasing in size and quantity.

I agree with you, never used to hear about them at all in the news and I doubt it's not because they weren't being spotted. Maybe we're just being conditioned to get used to them when they all start appearing daily ?

With everyone holding a camera of some kind we are just catching them more, they are more common than anyone knows




and these are just the ones that where witnessed or found, impressive no?

I saw a bright green, like almost neon, meteor-ish thing around September. Southeast US. Not sure what exactly it was, but it was unlike anything I had seen before or since.


The video in this thread is a meteor and does not look like the green lady.

However, This here post is interesting. Would you please describe in more detail what you saw. What color was the front of the meteor like thing? was it a different color than the tail? About how fast would you say it was moving in relation to a normal meteor fairly slower but still pretty damned fast?

Did it appear directly over head or off towards the horizon. Did it look like it was traveling parallel to the earth or seemingly falling (due to perspective) Did it make any sound?

Importantly what was the consistency of the tail (if it had one) was it fairly homogeneous in color being the same color green throughout. Was it wide and dispersed or tight and focused and laser like? Was it very short, sorta long but not necessarily like a contrail?

I said "meteor-ish" because that's the closest thing to a description I can think of. I doubt it was a true meteor. The tail was almost as short as the main body, it seemed way too close in proximity to be a meteor. When I say bright green, I mean GREEN , not a slight green tint, but definitely green (a little less bright than the emoticon options under the reply box here).

I've no clue the speed, but it seemed to be slower than a regular meteor. I normally have a very hard time seeing meteors, and maybe I noticed this one because of the color, but it seemed quite slow. I was driving and noticed it. I rolled my windows down to listen for an impact, but heard nothing. I also looked to see any light emitted from an impact, but didn't see that either.

i saw it over the tree line (which was just on the side of the road that I drove on), and it was coming down at an angel, definitely not parallel.

The tail was a little transparent compared to the body, and like I said, quite short. It may have been 1.5- 2 times the width of the body.

It also seemed a lot larger than any meteor I have ever seen. But, again, I haven't seen many.

Sorry my answers are jumbled. I keep scrolling up to see what you've asked.

no, your answers make a lot of sense to me.
minus some details with the 'tail' it's sounds like a pretty good description of something a lot of folks in the aviation threads would love to see.

was the 'body' a dirty whitish yellow like a candle flame.

green of the tail, was it like a almost laser green?

The body was bright green too, just opaque. No white or "whitishness" that I saw.

My kids have a children's book about the a dragon, and there is a picture in it that looks very similar to what I saw. If I can figure out how to get it uploaded, I'll post it. I saw this thing long before we ever had the book, and when I read it to my daughter, I said "that looks like what mommy saw that night".

You guys are talking like that movie : Small meteorites fall, and then a huge one appears out of nowhere and hits us...

As I commented in the other thread (which got locked), the news industry is changing. You see more and more sensationalist and "glittery" articles, be it about UFOs, fireballs, or what some celebrity wore when she was exiting such and such restaurant. That's what the media sees as a selling point these days.

In fact, I'm surprised there was just this one (along with the Scottish one) reported in recent times. Fireballs are more common than you think. There are probably more than 500,000 fireballs a year, but most will go unnoticed because most will occur over the ocean and half will occur during daytime. www.amsmeteors.org...

Because more cameras mean more videos.

If security cameras were not so ubiquitous as they are today, or smartphones with video cameras were not so ubiquitous, and if I simply tweeted a text message (with no video) "hey, I saw a fireball meteor", not a lot of social media users would really care that much.

However, with the ubiquity of security cameras and video cameras on smartphones, people are more likely to have a cool-looking video of the fireball that, when they upload the video to social media, more people are likely to take notice and share that video, allowing the videos to go more viral.

Even a time before the internet, if a fireball meteor happened in, say, Scotland, the local people may have talked about it the next day (e.g., "Hey, MacDougal...Did you see that fireball last night?"), but the news would not have spread around the world. Nowadays, blog writers and such are looking for content, so if they see that, say, channel 4 in Edinburgh did a story about a fireball with a cool security cam video, then bloggers, etc would be more likely to link the video, spreading the news around the world.

I know this is a late reply, but I found this image, and while it is an exaggeration, the color and shape of the individual meteor is the closest thing to what I saw.
