Not read the whole thread, so I don't know if this has been mentioned....If you know what this meteorite flew over, then chances are there's little bits of it strewn accross its path. This stuff is worth loads of money! Even small meteorites are woth a grand or 2. Take a strong magnet out and get scanning the fields and streets where this thing went over. Could net yourself a small fortune.

At least were not debating whether or not an obvious shot of the tail of the space shuttle in orbit is a gigantic alien mothership. Now that would be REALLY stupid. Don't you think?


Nice the very mature way you deal with criticism.... by the way I'm still waiting anyone to prove that pic is the tail of the space shuttle. But's ok, go back to your very productive discussion about the ghost shooting star.


Oh..well then you can't have read through your own thread because it was proven pretty conclusively that it was a shot of the tail of the shuttle and not some gigantic alien mothership orbiting our planet. A few posters were even kind enough to post some damn near identicle pictures to the one that you posted for reference.

It was a picture of the shuttle, end of story. Only a fool would believe otherwise. I mean, lets face it, the whole idea was completely ridiculous to begin with so maybe you shouldn't be so dismissive of other peoples threads and so quick to jump all over them with gusto because you think that it might be a silly story, when you yourself are guilty of posting what can only be described as complete nonsense in your own threads.

From 10:45 P.M. to 11:30 P.M. Eastern Time in Florida, USA, I was out in my backyard and watch an object in the Western sky, that was easily to judge that it was in outer space heading towards Earth.

I watched it at first with Binoculars, then used my Telescope and found it so interesting that I brought out my Analog Camera, set it on my tripod and filmed it for about 30 minutes.

I took notice to it at first when I did my regular glancing at the night sky. It was out of place in the back drop of stars. When I observed it through the binoculars & telescope, it seemed to be changing colors from red, blue, green, orange and white very quickly, and sometimes the colors would over lap each other. The light admitting from it would also expand and retract.

I called my wife out to also observe it through the telescope. In her eyes, she said it seemed to also tumble.

There was no tail that could be noticed. It seemed to stay in one place, but also grew slightly to the naked eye, as though it was coming closer.
So I would venture to guess it was a large meteor heading toward Earth.

But the Western sky is opposite of Scotland from where I was in Florida. (Scotland being North East of me) However, if it was taking a long time to get here, it's possible during Earths rotation it may have finally came through the atmosphere and Quensidently arrived over Scotland.

Hmmmmmm... the guy that posted this thread said the shooting star had the size of two buses... What kind of bus?? European urban bus?? American Greyhound like bus??? Well, if there was any impact, could be a new Tunguska, couldn't??? It's quite weird that media hadn't covered it, so far... But it's ok, I'll start to say here this thread was another April's fool joke, before someone shoot me...


[edit on 2-4-2010 by ucalien]


So I think what you're saying here and in a multitude of other posts I haven't quoted, unless I'm totally mistaken that is, is that you don't believe the OP.

Also, the unanimous expert opinion on the Tunguska event was that it was caused by an explosion at least 5 kilometers above ground. So no, if there was any impact of this "fireball" it really wouldn't be like the Tunguska event.

Not only have you beaten a dead horse by claiming over and over that the story sounds suspect to you, you're practically head-butting the horse now by mentioning wrong information in your "analysis". That's using your head!

We know you don't believe it. We all know you want to believe it. But you're presenting yourself as a bully. And no one likes a bully. So quit being a bully, you big bully.

Hmmmmmmmm.... I'm starting to believe that the ****HUGE**** ghost shooting star, wasn't THAT ghostly.... Indeed I'm starting to believe it was real, no an April's fool joke.... I see that indeed occurred a major impact and some people just got hit.... straight in the EGO...

ok i'm a little confused right now...

did this happen in the Scotland or the UK?

OP says he's from Scotland but a lot of people here are saying UK... so whats up with that?


Last time I checked, Scotland was part of the UK.

Has a law been passed over night ?

This was not a April Fools day thing.
I did see it. As did another.
Also was another sighting in Ireland.
We are (As I have read today) hitting some kind of astroid/comet tail thingy.

I will keep looking up.
We all should.

I am privaliged to have seen this.

It was AWSOME.

Just been looking at some meteor/asteroid calculators. A 10metre meteor obviously would burn up and not make it to the land surface.

50m.... burn up, same result.
100m... would reach the surface but in small chunks, and would leave a crater of 8 miles...

so either there is plenty of evidence still out there now in the form of a crater

or

it broke into bits and other people must have seen other parts

or

it didnt break into chunks, in which case it was probably bigger than 100m in space, and in which case there's a 20mile crater somewhere in the middle of scotland

I think we enjoy getting a bit uppity about this kind of thing. I mean, I think I would have trouble pointing out all the 57.5 states of the USA, other small sized countries, etc.


I have got a couple of points.

I was in the area but a few hours before this event happened. But when I got home ( about 30 miles West of Edinburgh) the sky was as clear as you can get, I noticed a lot more stars than usual.

About another 50 miles SW in ( I think) Dumfries, they have the Worlds third designated 'dark park' where stargazing is at a premium.

Surely with such a clear night, the stargazers would be out in numbers?

I cant believe nobody else seen this.

April fools - Check.
Making it up to feel good about myself - check
bored - check.

Come on.

I have posted threads, about the sun, with pictures (might be nothing).
Why would i make this sh49t up ?

Some people here REALLY need to take a LLLOOONNNG hard look in the mirror. the reaction from some is horrid.
I am all for freedome of speech etc, but come on people.
If you dont think so, leave people alone to debate it.


You just make people want to NOT post stuff again.
Some people post stuff about pixy dust and other stuff, and it gets debated.
I post something that happens EVERY DAY.
I am not an expert in the field.
I said it as I saw it.

Next time I go for a ciggy I will take a sky news crew with me, just incase.

Very interesting thread. It must have been a great sight as the sky was so clear. I'm about an hour south of Edinburgh so will keep an eye on the local media to see if anything comes up.

We are entering some meteor shower thingy this week.

I will be at the window, with camera.
Hopefully get something.

The size of two busses you say, if that was the case there would be no UK today. My guess is that you saw a fireball, I saw one about 15 years ago and it shot down maybe 50 meters from where I was standing. It lit up the sky like it was daytime, it was an awesome sight.

I have seen something very similar to that kind of shooting star. Except it didn't make any type of noise. It was around 3:00 a.m. when It took place I was in my backyard and I saw it at my 1 o clock; I remember it perfectly it was very large with a welders blue light color with a hot white center with orange sparks surrounding the middle. I've never seen such a shooting star so close and of that size. I was so surprised that I ran out in the middle of my street thinking I was going to hear a loud explosion when it touched base, it was moving diagonally,almost thought it was a plane crash.

Keep in mind, I am no expert.
I am just some guy posting what I saw.

I was hoping/praying someome else seen this.

I said in my 1st post "i hope we dont hear anything about this"
reason I said this, was because it looked BIG... and sounded EVIL..lol.

Thankfully I was wrong.
I did see it, I posted what I saw.

Must have been nothing.

Or maybe it was something, and we wont hear about it.
Keep in mind it was heading towards the River Forth.
Could it have hit that???
