Out There stories relating to "Fireball"
Sunday, November 25, 2012
The descriptions of this event suggest that it was a large meteor breaking up over the region on the night of November 24. The Leonid Meteor Shower took place between November 17 and 20, but the shower was exceptionally weak this year. Most of the Leonids are no larger than a grain of sand, so this object is unlikely to have been associated with the shower.

The fireball that crossed Texas and Oklahoma last week and was captured on a policeman's video is now under investigation by the FAA. Although it has been dismissed as a meteor, the fact that it had no glowing debris tail calls that idea into question. The object was also seen to change colors as it moved through the sky. (The video of the object appeared in Out There last week.)

It seems to be following a meteoric trajectory, but there's no trail behind it, so what is it? A meteor that bright would be expelling glowing material. It would appear to be a streak, not a discreet fireball.

Pretty dramatic description from four witnesses. Meteors and burning planes generally go down, not up, so what was this?

A substantial meteor crossed the eastern US at approximately 12:45 PM yesterday, and another fireball caused residents to report a possible plane crash in the UK 7 hours later, at 12:20 AM local time. The object that crossed the eastern US probably weighed around a hundred tons, and would have done signifcant damage if it had reached the ground. However, there were no reports of damage. The second fireball was probably smaller, but also a substantial meteor.

Without video, we cannot be certain, but this certainly sounds similar to the Polish sighting reported on this page.

This mystery from last summer, like so many, has simply been forgotten, never explained.

Apparently a meteor. The sky is very active these days.
