Eyewitness reports
Hello,

I'm writing to inform you that I saw something 'fall from the sky' this Thursday 13th of March around 10pm.

I was watching TV when I noticed a large ball of light moving quite fast in the sky. I understood right away that it was unlike anything I'd ever seen before (planes, shooting stars, helicopters, etc.)

I got up to move closer to the window but at that moment the fireball's brightness intensified then disappeared. So I looked online to see if anything was reported about it, but haven't found anything so far.

Hello,

While out driving with my husband, we saw a fast-moving and fragmenting ball of fire that was orange and green. Pretty impressive! It happened around 10pm on March 13th 2014.

Hi,

This evening I saw a huge ball of fire passing through the sky. It came from the East and continued in a westerly direction. I've never seen anything as big and bright, at least as bright as the Moon.
