It was something definatley entering the atmosphere, it just appeared.
The speed would have been thousands of MPH.
It appeared from my perspective to be travelling straight down, it was directly north, I would put it over Scotland.
It was a solid bright white light with a slight yellow tint, no trail behind it.
I lost view of it thanks to houses.
I would say it would be a meteor about the size of a tennis ball (or larger) as it was definatley brighter than your average "grain of sand" sized
"shooting star". What got me was the lack of trail and brightness, it didn't flare up like a bolide, it was the same from first appearing until I
lost sight of it. It definatley wasn't a satellite or iridium flare.
These larger "meteors" seem to be becoming more and more frequent as time goes by, it wasn't that long ago a massive fireball streaked right across
the length of the entire UK, witnessed by tens of thousands of people. We must be passing through a well littered part of the galaxy.
