|Fireball over Blackpool England 9.45pm 27/08/06
My son happened to be staring out of our living room windows during a Lightning storm when he shouted about something in the sky. I rushed over to see what appeared to be a relatively slow moving fireball crossing the sky a few hundred feet above the houses to the North.
The fireball petered out heading towards Staining village, we lost sight of it as it disappeared behind a house.
Speed wise, it didnt streak across the sky, but was moving at the speed of a fast car against the dark of the sky.
