I'm new to this place, bit of a skeptic, but will believe it when I see it. Though I find it interesting to read all the different theories based on
different stories and pictures/evidence that different people present. Therefore, with all of yours extensive knowledge, maybe you could dig up a few
theories based on what I've seen because I'm coming up blank.
I was living in Tromsø at the time, it's about 1 1/5 year ago. Tromsø is a city in northern Norway, above the polar circle with sea to the west and
mountains everywhere else. I was standing outside the house I was living in having a fag before going to bed, quite late, but during that time of year
it's dark anyway.
It was a really clear night and I was looking to see if I could catch some northern auroras. I could see the milky way and my eyes were very adjusted
to the dark. I saw alot of shooting stars and for a moment looked to the north/west area. There I saw what could be reminded of a fireball, really
quickly came and went. It was pretty far away in the horizon. It didn't shoot across the sky in that sense it just appeared for about a second and
then disappeard again. Bright orange in colour and like I mentioned reminded me of what could be an explotion or fireball.
The next day I checked every news source about anything it might be but found nothing. If any of you have any thories, ideas or anything about what
this could be. Please feel free to speak your mind. Because I've been wondering about what that could be ever since I saw it.
