Location of Sighting: Rothwell, Northamptonshire
Date of Sighting: 5th Feb 2010
Time: 21:00 hrs

Witness Statement: I would like to report a sighting of a fireball over my home in Rothwell Northamptonshire, I spotted this fireball around 21:00 hrs on the 5th Feb 2010. It was heading North but not sure how fast it was traveling I would say around 300mph as it looked as if it was traveling at the same speed as a plane would go. I tried to get video footage but by the time I got to my phone the fireball was going out of sight, managed to get a couple of seconds but it not brilliant.

I told my family but didn't think too much of it, but then when I looked on the internet to see if anyone else had seen it I came across a news article about one being spotted in Ireland.
