METEORITE????

Post by Lurchio on Tue Oct 06, 2015 12:30 am

About 00.15, I was exercising the dogs and looked towards the west to see an EXTREMELY bright trail and forward ball travelling across the sky, I mean extremely bright!!! It travelled left to right (towards Jablacon) and disappeared from sight. It had the light intensity of a large flare / large firework and lit up the clear night sky, no problem. It was so big that I waited for the crunch as it landed! Obviously I didn't hear one, but it was a spectacular sight.

Any ideas, Freila / Zujar are you still there?

Don't laugh!!!!!!! Question Shocked

It was a piece a the comet Enke and was noted by the observatory at La Sagra - there's a piece about it in the Ideal online, but for some reason I can't paste the link!

Thank you. I noted it as well (to say the least!) .......................................... I'll try the 'Ideal' now. Much appreciated, thought I was going mad!

And I thought it was a UFO dropping off little green men, (Well that's what Peter Goss told me anyway). What a Face What a Face What a Face
