England: A50, Meir/Longton, Stoke-on-Trent - A Fireball-Like Object

Posted: July 5, 2009

Date: June 6 2009
Time: 11pm
Number of witnesses: 4
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Fireball/bright light
Weather Conditions: Small amount of cloud

Description: A fast moving fireball like object moving in direct path over the A50, seen on two occasions with a full car of people with me. At first we thought it was an aircraft on fire, it almost looked as though the light emitted from the object was passing through and searching the clouds, I dunno. It was moving in a straight line but the light appeared to flicker, but it's path did not falter. Light was not coming from a direct source or visible light or led, like a glowing ball almost.

Ireland: County Laois - A Very Strange Sound From All Over the Sky

Posted: July 4, 2009

Date: 5 6 2009
Time: 23.40
Number of witnesses: 2
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Small lights
Weather Conditions: Cloudy sky

Description: We both heard a very very strange sound when we were in the house. It was a deep sound that washed in and out, in and out. I didn't know what it was at first - it sounded like a boiler, but we both looked at each other both in shock because it was a much bigger sound than that. We went outside and the sound came from the sky, but it seemed to come from all over the sky - it was very hard to locate the source of the sound. We eventually saw the source of the sound - a light fly away which looked like a plane, but the sound was no sound of a normal plane. It was much deeper, widespread and it washed inward and outward.

US: 2 See Large Fireball Break Up Into Smaller Fragments

Posted: July 4, 2009

Date of Sighting: July 2, 2009
Time of Sighting: 10 PM MDT
Location of Sighting: Longmont, Colorado (About 20 Miles North of Denver)

Description: My partner and I were driving East to Longmont on Highway 66 (Ute Highway) from Lyons, Colorado and saw a giant fireball in the sky, hiding behind a large section of storm clouds. At first I thought it was the moon, but suddenly it came out from behind the clouds and rapidly decreased in altitude. Once it began decreasing in altitude, it starting breaking up into smaller pieces-- two, then three and then four. As soon as it began breaking up, they began flying in formation to the West (thus eliminating the option of it being a meteor due to it's trajectory). About 30 seconds later, 4 of the pieces began falling to the ground (each piece also had very long tails, similar to a meteor). As they were falling, two of the pieces jutted off to the left, while the other two jutted to the right. One by one, they fell to the ground in a blaze.

England: Reader reports sighting of orange fireball-like object in the sky above Knutsford

A reader wrote to the Guardian on Sunday to report a sighting of an orange fireball-like object in the sky above Knutsford.

The letter is below.

Dear Sirs, Last night - Saturday 27th June 2009 - while walking home from visiting friends, my son, partner and myself saw a strange object in the sky above Knutsford. Although we are used to seeing planes flying over us regularly, this was not a plane!

It was like an orange red fireball and at the height it must have been, was much larger than a plane, it traveled at great speed for what would have been several miles (at that height) and then hovered over Knutsford for several minutes before gradually getting smaller and then disappearing. This was just after 11pm. While we were watching we heard voices behind us and 2 other people who had walked in the same direction arrived. We pointed out the light and both of these people also saw the same light.

[Video] A fireball in the sky of France

An amateur videographer has filmed an impressive fireball that travelled the skies of France in June 2009. The ball of fire then disappeared from view behind trees. According to their comments it is not an airplane. This fireball is like having an object coming through the atmosphere... unless it is an airplane? Could it be a UFO? I did not find more information on this video.


Comment: Sott.net has an alternative theory - incoming space debris:

US: Meteor lights up the sky over Arizona

Loud boom heard, bright streak seen across the region late Tuesday

Sierra Vista - A number of southeastern Arizona residents reported seeing a bright meteor in the night sky Tuesday, followed by a loud explosion-like sound as it fell to Earth.

At his home off of Highway 191, about seven miles south of Interstate 10, Wayne Crane said he saw the shooting star just as it lit up the sky shortly before 9:30 p.m.

"I was facing probably southwest, and I just happened to look up, and I saw a glowing object," Crane said. The object appeared very bright and very large, "like a moon against the sky."

The meteor was visible only briefly, said Crane, who is the public relations manager for Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Cooperative.

Blue fireball falling; disappears before reaching horizon

I was driving north of Highway 41 entering southern Brooksville. I saw a large, bright blue fireball fall straight from the sky in the distance to the north. It disappeared BEFORE reaching the horizon like a comet fading. However, this thing moved much slower and was much bigger than a comet. It looked like space debris but it was too large and moved too fast.

US: Fireball in Texas night was likely a meteor, expert says

While most of the Metroplex was asleep early Monday a fireball shot across the sky, startling those who were still awake.

"It was huge," said Austin Babek, 18, who observed the light show from outside his south Arlington home. "It actually scared me it was so big."

Babek said he and a friend saw the fireball at 12:56 a.m. He said it lasted about five seconds and was bright orange with a long blue and green tail.

"I've seen shooting stars before but never anything like this," he said.

Australia UFO crash: Meteor or extraterrestrial craft?

Something fell from the sky today and landed on a mountain near the town of Gin-Gin in central Queensland in Australia. The object or UFO, described by witnesses as a fireball, set nearby trees alight. A subsequent search of the area failed to find any remains of whatever it was that impacted the bush.

Most are declaring the object to be either space junk or a very small meteor that had entered the earth's atmosphere, however others are not sure. Is it possible that it was a UFO of extra-terrestrial origin?

According to Australian ufologist Michael Cohen 'unmanned' probes sent by an extra-terrestrial civilization to explore earth and other planets are entering the atmosphere through specific UFO vortex exits located at various points throughout the world. These vortex exits are currently being studied by government scientists. No such exits are believed to be located in the skies above Australia; however the super-fast travelling probes that enter earth through them are exploring all continents.

Comment: Let's not downplay the catastrophic effect that a "pebble from space" could have on those of us living on this planet.

A meteor exploding above the planet just may be what brought down Flight 447.

Air France crash: 'bodies hold clues to what happened'

The identification of bodies from Air France flight 447 that disappeared out of the sky en route from Brazil to France may hold vital clues to the tragedy that claimed 228 lives.

Investigators believe that comparing where the passengers were sitting and where their bodies were found in the ocean could provide information about when the doomed aircraft broke up after vanishing over the Atlantic on May 31.

A desperate race against time and worsening weather is on to find the plane's black boxes, the best hope of establishing exactly what went wrong, but in their absence experts are having to piece together clues from the victims and debris found in the sea.

As the search continues the family of one of the victims has filed a civil action in order to force investigators to hand over information about the crash.

Maître Sophie Bottai, representing the parents, brother and girlfriend of an unnamed 38-year-old passenger from Paris, said they "had the feeling that a part of the truth was not being told".

She added: "Given the clear filtering of information, certain families of victims of the crash of flight AF447 feel that the whole truth has not been told on the subject.

"We want simple answers to simple questions; for example why was there such a delay between the last signal from the plane and the moment the authorities raised the alarm."
