Description: Me and my mate were walking home and I spotted what looked like 3 fireballs in the sky, they were traveling quite slow in the sky and they looked like they were coming towards us, we didn't know what to do. This is the second time we have seen them in the same area. We have video footage but didn't know how to put it on here.
A huge fire which tore through a Cumbria peat bog near Carlisle may have been caused by a meteor strike, according to some locals.
Firefighters spent several hours on Monday morning battling the blaze at Wedholme Flow, near Kirkbride, which at its height stretched for half a mile, leaving a wall of fire visible from miles around.
A spectacular fireball was spotted streaking across the Whitby sky on Monday night.
A local resident saw the object just before 11pm as it moved across the sky before disappearing above the sea.
Alison Heffernan of Holly Tree Court, spotted something in the sky when she was watching television.
She said: "Me and my partner have been decorating so we didn't have any curtains up. We were watching TV and saw something bright going across the sky. It was about the size of a 10p piece and was very bright, it seemed to break up then disappear over the sea."

Observers have reported a meteor over Edinburgh, after a "very fast" bright green light was seen traveling across the sky towards East Lothian.
Meteors are easier to spot at night
Witnesses said it happened just after 2230 BST on Monday and was as fast as a low-flying jet.
The fireball lasted about five seconds before burning out.
Rob Ritchie, of North Berwick, said he saw it while traveling along the A1 moving towards the Lammermuir Hills in a south easterly direction.
Fallon, Nevada - May 7, 2009 - Boomerang-shaped UFO menaces young couple in Nevada desert
A report of a boomerang-shaped UFO has captured the attention of the Mutual UFO Network (Mufon), and may be categorized as a "Level 3" event, which is one of the highest ranked UFO sightings and characterized as a close encounter with an object.
The first witness described the object as being a mere 100 yards away from their vantage point, and at an altitude of 200 feet. The boomerang-shaped object was estimated to be approximately 50 feet wide, and was a solid mass when viewed head-on, changing to translucent while retaining a faint outline when turning, or banking. There was a bright, intense light at the nose of the craft, with two occasionally flashing yellow lights on each side. There were no lights on the bottom. The event began when the witness, and his girlfriend, were returning from a drive in the desert. They observed what appeared to be three strange aircraft flying together erratically in a triangular formation. The objects stopped suddenly and one of the objects fell slowly to the ground as if it had crashed, and the other two separated and flew southwest.
Local law enforcement officials haven't closed the books on identifying the cause of a fireball in the skies of Cherokee County May 5, but they're no longer actively searching for its origin.
Tahlequah-Cherokee County Emergency Management Director Gary Dotson said Thursday that search efforts have been called off. Emergency services personnel searched Tuesday and Wednesday, without success.
Dotson had said a Woodall firefighter reported seeing the fireball as it plummeted to the ground.
Eric Wichman, a private researcher for Meteorites USA, a California organization, said the idea that the fireball may have been a plane or helicopter hasn't been completely ruled out. He said, however, that eyewitnesses he spoke to have said it didn't sound like an aircraft.
"It's possible it could have been a meteor fireball," Wichman said. "The witnesses said it was high in the sky and below the cloud cover. They said it was moving southwest to northeast."
Comment: Oh yes, nothing to worry about with falling meteorites. They only hurt if they fall on you.
We suggest you read any, or even better, all of the articles listed in the sidebar to the left under "Comets and Catastrophes". This is not to frighten anyone, but to get a better understanding of just what the PTB don't want you to know.
Remember, knowledge protects.
Officials say there is no known cause
Something went boom in the night Tuesday, but no one seems to know what it was.
The boom seemed especially powerful along the coast, where residents reported windows, doors and houses shaking at about 10 minutes before 8 p.m.
There was speculation that the sound and accompanying sensation came from a supersonic jet, officials with the Federal Aviation Administration and the U.S.Geological Survey said Wednesday.
Navy officials said they knew of no aircraft activity Tuesday night that might have caused the boom. Marine officials said they would research whether their aircraft might have been responsible.

There have been reports of a possible meteor crashing into Earth early Sunday morning near Flagstaff.
Multiple people called police saying they saw a car size ball of flame crashing to Earth.
Jeff Hall, who works for Lowell Observatory, was at home when he looked out his window and saw the object. "The fireball, heading northeast, was really bright, I do not know if whatever that was impacted, but it was exceptionally bright for a meteor," Hall told KTAR.
Halls' neighbors are members of a search and rescue crew. They said a chopper crew on duty reported being "blinded" by it.
According to Hall, there may have been more than one object.
