Thanks for posting shauny, very interesting. There's virtually NOTHING about this anywhere on the web, except one report from a guy that read your post on here!

It's very strange to say the least that no official body has released ANY information about this AT ALL?!

You say you heard a banging noise coming from the sky after the sighting? Like a hammer on metal?

Did you hear an explosion, like you'd expect it this thing impacted?
Going by the size you and others who say it have reported, it would have mead a huge explosion upon impact wouldn't it? The crater alone would be least 100 meters or so i would have thought, wouldn't it?

Unless it wasn't an ordinary meteor.

This is a conspiracy site after all, so...

Given that several of you (at least several) saw this huge ball of fire, streaking fast and low towards ground, and the VERY curious silence by official bodies that would normally report on such things, AND the absence of any significant explosion that would have had to be heard all over Scotland and probably beyond too...what if...this was part of a ship?

You've all probably read the threads of a so called 'War in space' going on.

What if this was a part of a destroyed ship? If it wasn't really dense, like a solid meteor would be, that may explain the lack of a huge explosion, or impact crater?

If they are fighting it out up there, there's bound to be earthbound wreckage and debris, that the 'official' channels wouldn't draw attention to.

Just a thought...

if this is a Real Meteor and what you hear is helicopters and construction noises (militant movement ?) and you said huge 2 buses right ? and if this is done so quickly of an response time the U.K Government Known this well in advance that this meteor was coming remember what hit Jupiter ( 1994 impact of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 )

Hopefully a bigger meteor does not come after as another member said he saw one or the same could it be 2 ? one burned up in entry the other did not ?

if not then this is self explainable A Airport is close by their must always be ready emergency medical/fire response team at or near a Airport ( Airliner Engine on fire or some sort of jet )
i guess time will tell

I cant wait ! Ill be looking for it on the news

Space is at war? With who?

I hope it's void. I hate void.

Attention seeking? A huge roaring meteor the size of two buses would have been reported on the news or local paper at least.

Eh, calm down you lot. It/they was/were just a BIG meteor/meteors.

I think Shauny and I witnessed two separate but related events. IE one large meteor breaking into two pieces. Shauny saw the biggest one which made a noise and didnt appear to burn up, I witnessed the smallest (however still very large) which made no sound and burnt out before impact.

The reason there are no reports in media about this is no doubt because there is nothing out of the ordinary to report. It was simply a very spectacular natural occurence.

I know this is a conspiracy site, but before we go calling it a "destroyed ship" or debris from a "space war", I think it`s imperative you first allow rationality to guide you.

I know this an ATS cliche, but, really, a cigar is sometimes (and most of the time) just a cigar, not a space elephant`s trunk.

What are you on about?

Attention seeking?

You are saying that because there are no media reports on this event, that it`s a fabrication fuelled by attention seeking?

It`s amazing how much instant distrust of someone`s innocent account of an event a site like this can breed.

Could have just been Military manouvers. Practising dry-runs using a Fighter on full-afterburner going low-level (giving the impression it was dropping behind the hill.)
The bangs you heard after were simply explosive shockwaves from the rounds the Military uses being reflected off a inversion layer or topographic surroundings.

Yes, ok, but, in all your wisdom, consider this...

The Irish one must have been considerably larger than the one Shauny and I witnessed.

posted on Apr, 2 2010 @ 07:45 AM
it must have very cool for you to have witnessed the event in person!
i guess the media is running a little late on this one

Thanks for all the GOOD replied people.

I have been here for years, been posting for years, know a few people. and I dont make things up.

People who say "hoax" "attention seeker" etc, etc, all you do is make people like me, stop sharing things.

This happened.
One other person on the thread also seen something at the same time.

Read my 1st post again.
Infact I will quote it :

News without proof here I am afraid. I live in central Scotland, North/West Edinburgh. Was having a cigarette outside the kitchen window (Facing South) and From the east i seen AND heard this looked 2 x the size of a bus, was deffo 100% a shooting star. It was dipping very hard as it went out of sight. Seemed to be heading towards Falkirk/Grangemouth, round about that way. This never burnt out, it HAD to have hit land. It streaked into earth, and it looked as big as a plane as it was at eye level as it disappeared behind a building (i live at the top a big hill) Lets hope we hear nothing else about this ............. Shauny

Then I say this :

I feel like I shouldnt have started this, As I feel (Aside from other confirmation) this wont go anywhere.

So to be fair, I kinda, while posting, was thinking "nobody will have seen this". One person did. But no pictures, video, etc, etc

I am sorry.

What time did this event happen about?

I was traveling back from Edinburgh airport heading back towards Glasgow and could see Helicopters on my right hand side in the distance looking as though they were searching for something. I pointed it out to my boyfriend as I wondered what they might be doing. This was about 8.30 to 8.45, it may be irrelevant but just thought I would mention it!

The most likley scenario i can think of is space debris.
A big piece none the less, but could explaine the choppers going to it straight after and the noises.
Planes have a black box right? Well maybe all the equiptment in orbit around our plannet have something of the same sort?
The choppers could of just gone there to retrieve that data or what not.
For not being in the news either, well, would scotland realy feel confertable reporting that they have some russian space debris and they now have secret russian information regarding space missions?
I think the UK would prefer to keep it under wraps and not let them know.

However this is just one possible explanation, the meteorite is possibly the best one. The only problem is the size, if it was two times bigger than a bus, well thats smeggin huge! A typical bus is not too far of being a tone, and a rock is dence material, so it would be very heavy if it were to be that size. If it was a meteor, the effects would of been much like the one that fell onto russia (i think it may of been 1918, i tend to struggle with exact dates) that flattered down a whole forrest.

Slightly off topic I am afraid but there has been a lot of meteor activity the last few months. I don't see any reason why Shauny would make this up. What would he have to gain? And a second witness Psilosimon, what would he have to gain?

So much doubt here sometimes, makes me mad.

Any way, here is a fairly recent report from Jersey.

And Geurnsey

And a meteor shower earlier this year that wasn't mentioned much:

And then this lil tidbit I found, maybe what Shauny saw was an early start or just a random one off:

Point is, seeing a meteor burning across the sky is not something one sees very often but it is still a common event. So all you naysayers, please think before you speak.

Must admit.

When I seen it, "DREAD" was the feeling I felt.
My baby daughter was sleeping feet away, in the next room, and this was ROARING past me..

it was sureal to say the least.

I had to come on and look for this thread, because when I woke up, I had to make sure it wasnt a dream.

I have a camera, that can take video. And somenights, i throw new batteries into it, and film away. Last night I never. If I did, you all would have seen something. I SSSSOOO wish I could share this.

This happened moments before I posted the thread.

Yeah that would be so cool if you had got it on tape.
It would be funny to say you had no evidence, let all the naysayers have their 2 cents worth then release the video a few days later!! muhahahahaha

Sorry, I have a twisted imagination.

Oh common a HUGE ROARING Meteor the size of TWO buses, which didnt go out and headed for the Earth is just something which happens everyday?

Hey guess what ive seen plenty of meteors in my time and none of them have ever "ROARED" past me

posted on Apr, 2 2010 @ 08:30 AM
Hi, I'm in Leith but didn't hear anything......too many beers last night! Searched on twitter and someone else saw it unless that was you on twitter as well! Was it anywhere near the Pentlands? Just asking as there is an army range up there just off the A702. Think its called 'Castlelaw'. Odd that people mention helicopters in the area? Why would they be going to invetigate meteors? Must be something else

You ARE kidding right?

The reason there are no reports in media about this is no doubt because there is nothing out of the ordinary to report. It was simply a very spectacular natural occurence.

The media have been ALL OVER meteorite reports all over the world!

'Nothing out of the ordinary'?!!

Blimey, it must be like a shooting gallery where you live if you think a huge fireball racing across the sky, followed by helicopters and metallic hammering noises coming from the sky, is an every day thing.

I'm not saying it IS space debris from a man made or ET craft, i'm not saying it IS anything, i was speculating based on the reports offered, and other similar reports from around the world, over the last few years.

Nah, the media wouldn't be interested would they..i hear Jordan is having her tits enlarged again, they are all camped out down the doctors i s'pect...either that or a cat has got stuck up a tree again.
