OK, this, I'm sure wasn't a UFO - but I found a link, and I thought I'd share it anyway... I had just got home and was locking my car door when I noticed some bright flashes - lightening - I wanted to see how far away it was. I just missed a flash, so I kept looking in the Northerly direction. Then from NW to NE a fireball arched across the sky. It was unlike the Leonids (i.e. it wasn't fuzzy and greenish/blue) it was white/yellow and a bit broke of it and fell quicker... i.e. it went down (like it hit resistance in the air) instead of with the rest of the fireball to the NE... Basically I think it was space junk - but I thought I might report it anyway!
