Claims still coming in -- looks like a fireball of some sort:

Pretty cool, hopefully someone got some better zoomed-in videos.

Looks like a standard Meteor to me.

You are the only one mentioning "UFO's".

Wait...Wasn't the article linked by Jim titled:

"Video: ‘UFO’ sighted over Saudi Thursday night"

Granted, I realize Jim himself didn't call it a UFO, but his linked article did.
I see no problem with pointing out the inaccuracy of the term UFO in the article.

Not quite sure...but it looks like satellite space debris, reentering our atmosphere. If the fiery objects did not have a fiery tail, then I would be more excited that it could possibly be an alien starship, since a magnetically encased plasma shield --- that possibly surrounds a starship --- would simply absorb any heat and sound waves, during entry into our atmosphere.

Way to slow for meteors.
Re-entry?

Er, where would you have Jim place this thread..? In Rant..?


It's an unidentified something, but the OP never used the term UFO. So, there was no need to state that it's not a UFO...hasty debunking is just as bad as zealous belief.


Or your lack of critical thinking skills see it otherwise..?

Going to the Op's link, I find this headline on the right"

Mystery blast at Kuwait building blamed on Djinn
Paper says no traces of blast or fire and it could be act of jinn

What kind of website is this? Is this the Saudi version of the Weekly World News?


But back on topic. Looks like a meteor to me. Somehow I get the feeling that the ISON comet debris people will be using this as "proof". Didn't they say something about 1/15 or so?

No -- not too slow. Not really.

Here is the "Peekskill Meteorite" from 1992, one of the most widely-filmed fireballs, mostly because it fell on a Friday evening during high school football season, and several people filming their kids playing football caught the meteor on camera.

By the way, I live in Pennsylvania and saw this fireball myself on that evening (I was in my car when I saw it in front of me). It's called the "Peekskill Meteorite" because a piece of it survived atmospheric entry and landed on the back of a parked car in Peekskill, New York.

Bolide fireball meteors can look like that, too.

Actually, a hyperbolic force shield projection from a flying saucer actually pierces the atmosphere like a needle, and rather than absorb heat and sound, it doesn't make a shockwave or create enough friction to generate heat or sound. Kind of like a good diver entering into a pool with barely a splash. Really speeds up re-entry by making it perpendicular to the ground. As a added bonus, it only shows up on radar as a spot that appears and instantly vanishes.

I tried to start a Meteor Watch site and it seems to not be going so good, so I would appreciate if some info from this event was put there if you wouldn't mind?

I dunno... all the hyperbolic force shield projectors I've seen installed on flying saucers have been more than a little noisy.

I'm advised this is the object's license number:

33052/2008-028B, CZ-3B Rocket Body –
was used to launch the GEO satellite Chinasat 9 in 2008

In my view, these events are PRECISELY of value to 'UFO studies' because they create a serendipitous 'control experiment' of eyewitness stimuli -- and SOME satellite reentries create SPECTACULAR 'UFO' reports, allowing serius students to better calibrate their instruments -- eyewitness testimony.

Here's a major analysis just finished by Ted Molczan along those very lines.
