I've just noticed, looking at my charts of the area, the objects I saw were travelling down a corridor that originated at RAF Odiham. They would have followed a route to Ockham and then Biggin Hill, thus avoiding Heathrow and Gatwick airspace.
Points towards military aircraft travelling in a pair. What sort of technology was this??!!

I had a Nikon 300mm F4 mounted on a tripod, pointing at the moon. It was set up for a 1/125sec exposure at F4.

If I had been able to get it off the tripod, reset it into an appropriate exposure and take a photo I would have been lucky to get anything bar a bright orange blob on a black background. It was pointless.

The objects I saw did not resemble that one. No tail and distinctly orange.

I wasn't fortunate enough to see the fireball with my own eyes (seen some spectacular footage though) there's a couple of things bothering me about this. The first being that it was spotted here, over Arbroath before it went over Glasgow, which means it would have had to be travelling on a (generalised) South Westerly direction, if it had been, when it passed Glasgow it would have continued out over the Ocean, wouldn't it? The second thing that I find suspicious about this is that, in this country we do see shooting stars, meteors, ball lightening and other, unexplained phonomena (just read my writing for strange lights over Arbroath) but this is the first time in my 34 year experience I've heard of something like this being spotted from as far North as Aberdeen and as far South as the Midlands. I'm not saying that it's not a meteor, I'm just saying these points make me wonder. Exciting stuff regardless.

There is something not quite right with this. The "Meteor" was sighted in Glasgow, Whitely Bay Tyne And Wear, Liverpool Merseyside, Birmingham West Midlands, South Wales, South Mimms, North London and Dorset amongst others. I have always believed that meteor's travel in a straight line. If those sighting locations are all correct, then the meteor zig-zaggged across the full length of the UK.

Couldn't this just be explained by there being more than one meteor / object? Could it be space junk re-entering the atmosphere, rather than meteors - apparently there's a lot of it up there? One of the videos definitely shows a separate bit dancing around in the sky, as if a bit has broken off. A video that I saw earlier today on the BBC website - can't locate it now - seems to go with the idea that it was an object much bigger than the usual meteor because there was a large sort of black lump at the front of it. The thing that puzzles me most is what one of the other contributors mentioned - there seem to be a variety of directions they are going in (North to South, and South to North, roughly speaking).

Something that disturbs me - don't know if anyone else has thoughts on this - but there is a little round speck of steady light that I keep seeing in the background in ordinary journalistic footage of unusual events, and in one of the videos, it seems to be there again. I've ruled out street lamps and moon. When it really made me sit up, was when I saw it in the background of footage of Fukushima.

I'm wondering if it is indeed possible for a meteor to fling all the way around the earth, burning up the whole time, and then being the same one as seen in Melbourne...???


Has the exact direction of this meteor been determined?

Are you talking about the black orb with the trail that flew across the tsunami wave as it hit the shore? I noticed that too! Very odd!

Hi all,
I just signed up because I witnessed something related to this phenomena last night.
I live in Woking, Surrey, and went out at 7pm last night to photograph the moon (since it was a very clear sky).
Just after I set the camera up on my tripod, an object appeared, travelling from South West to North East. It was orange in colour, pulsating as if it were on fire. There was no tail from the object. It did not change direction and seemed to fly on a level attitude. I initially wondered if it could be a military aircraft, maybe with afterburners, but as it passed over it made no sound (there were passenger jets in the area shortly after the time that could be clearly heard at circa 25,000ft).


Are you quite certain of that direction? Just would like conformation if possible. thanks

Wow you really are the font of all knowledge, and so nice with it!

Seriously now though, you miss understand what he's saying, I think he means that he saw something else, not the meteor, and by the sounds of it there may have been a few sightings that don't add up. I'm going with a few meteors...

A meteor doesn´t land per se.


The visible path of a meteoroid that enters Earth's (or another body's) atmosphere is called a meteor, or colloquially a shooting star or falling star. If a meteoroid reaches the ground and survives impact, then it is called a meteorite.

I seen it aswell, it did look to be moving slow and was different to any other shooting star ive seen. It definately was awesome, those videos do it no justice at all. The object at the front was brilliant white and it had a huge pure golden tail which was perfectly straight and sparkling. There was no evidence to me of it being a 'craft' of anykind though other wise id have freaked out lol.
