Translation of article:
The police in Selfoss caught these weird lights in the sky on tape shortly after midnight last night. The officers were going east during a routine highway patrol on Eyrarbakka-road when they noticed a spectacular flare which to them seemed to be heading to the river Ölfusá. Speculations are that this was a meteorite entering the atmosphere.
Many saw the flare and notified the police, and the flare was seen all around the south of Iceland and in Akranes. It is believed impossible to have been an emergency flare.
The sheriff in Selfoss says there has not been any aftermath to his knowledge, and no unusal visitors have been seen that could possibly have fallen from the sky.
