I don't know if anyone else has posted this but the whole situation can be summarized as:
One falling meteorite broke at roughly 10000 feet that formed two bolides that almost reached ground level and the loud sounds were debris from the
same meteorite that were breaking the sound barrier and were heard above the main area where the bolides made a landfall. My estimations are the
meteorite had an unusual shape so all parts broke off and traveled at a slightly different angles. Somehow the two parts that formed the two visible
bolides had slower speed than the team of debris overhead that seemed that they were breaking the sound barrier.
Is this normal? Especially for latitudes at UK?

Thats, what i have said a couple times in this thread.
See, the event I witnessed, and the event Shauny witnessed, happened at roughly the same time, they were both heading in EXCACTLY the same direction
(check the maps farther back in the thread). The only difference in accounts is that Shauny`s one did not burnt out and made a noise, whilst my one
definitely did burn out and made no noise.
My conclusion is that Shauny the entry of the largest of the two bollides, and I witnessed the second, higher and smaller one.
Its really simple all you people with negative attituides...
I dont, and I`m sure SHauny doesn`t take a camera or camera phone out for a cigarette. Even if either of us had, by the time you get the device ready
to shoot, the metor wouldv`e been gone, these things don`t hang about in the sky saying cheese.
Im disgusted with some of the replies in here. You know who you are.
Shauny, keep looking up my man, I know I`ll be out for a smoke tonight WITH my phone on video mode at the ready, and I have a feeling you`ll be doing
the same, lets hope we can put these troll`s gas at a peep eh!
WIth that, I`m leaving this thread. It gets too sweaty in here sometimes.
Love you all, even the opinionated little children who will learn one day.
