Is this another light show in the skies event???

More strange colours have been spotted in the skies, this time in Carolina USA.




About 8 p.m. Wednesday, something peculiar flashed in the sky -- something twinkly, something colorful, something eye-catching.

Something strange. And blue. Or green. Or blue-green.

"Bright blue-green ball with a white tail," says Jim Neal of Shelby, who spotted it just west of Blacksburg, S.C., after dinner at Kelly's Steak House.

"A greenish-like light low in the sky," says Julie Bigham, driving home from church with her kids near Matthews. "We thought a small plane or helicopter was going to crash."

"A slow-moving bluish glow," says David Whitesides who works in Polkton and who watched it while soaking in his hot tub.

"Large, bright green ball," says Brett Lay, who was headed to Chick-fil-A in Gastonia with his wife and four children after church. "Had a haze about it."

"Almost looked like a flare," reports Amy Bromberg, who was on Interstate 485. "Kind of creepy."

Venus, perhaps? It's often a suspect in UFO sightings, particularly when it's as bright as it is right now.

Not Venus. It vanished beneath the horizon about 7 p.m.

Stricken plane?

Nope. All aircraft accounted for.

Space junk? Errant satellite?

Negative, says NORAD. No re-entries of the sizable man-made objects they track.

OK. So ... alien object?

Bingo. But not the E.T. variety.

"A fireball," says Daniel Caton, observatory director and astronomy professor at Appalachian State University in Boone.

Based on the reports, Caton believes it was an unusually bright meteor that burned up about 30 miles high in the atmosphere somewhere above Charlotte. Sightings came from more than 100 miles away.

Many witnesses say the light appeared to fizzle at the end and break into pieces, making it a special kind of fireball called a bolide. In the universe of meteors, they're A-List entertainers, known for their splashy finales.



What was that light in the sky?

Here are some of the 911 calls that were made about this event.

Though this is more than likely caused by a bolide meteor... you can never tell for certain what the cause.

All the best,

Shelby is in North Carolina, about 45 miles west of Charlotte. The story stated that Jim Neal is from Shelby; he made his sighting after visiting a restaurant in Blacksburg, SC, which is about 10 miles or so south of Shelby, NC.

Thanks for that. As I live in London England, I don't know the geography of the State of Carolina.

I have changed the title accordingly.



All the best,

Not to labor the point, but North Carolina is a separate state from South Carolina. The many sightings that occurred last week (Wed, Jan 24) roughly followed a line from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Greenville, South Carolina -- a distance of about 100 miles along Interstate Highway 85, which crosses the state border near Blacksburg, SC.
