    Default We just saw something VERY weird........

    The Lang Blond and I quickly went in to town to get something.

    We saw a huge thing, my first impression was an aeroplane crashing.

    VERY VERY fast.

    Light yellow "ball" with a grass green "tail".

    ........anyone knows something about this?? What is it?? Comet or what??

    We saw it VERY clearly.

    No serious Fluff......I'm trying to search on the Net if something has been some, but cant find anything.

    The thing looked like a crashing plane on 1st thought, but disappeared behind the horizon. Fast like in unbelievably fast like in lightning fast, at that distance.

    Had a VERY distinct green tail, very clear and beautiful.

    Lots of space debris burning up as it enters the atmosphere again, or even astroids.

    Or it might be a test unit from North Korea that went stray. Do you smell anything?

    In the interest of transparency, I must disclose that my real name is Anakin Skywalker. I hail from the planet Tatooine. When I am not piloting my Imperial Class Destroyer, a magnificent vessel that perfectly complements my malignant narcissism, I drive a Nissan Patrol, a Japanese automobile from Planet Earth that certainly grounds me in many, many ways.

    West meaning it went westwards?? Yes. VERY clear, green and bright, fast as lightning. Seemed big. Meaning, as big as a falling aeroplane.

    Looks like it yes Regard......but "mine" was VERY clear and green, with a large tail. On the video it seems like it disappears, maybe behind buildings or something.

    I saw it at around 19h03/4.......I remember checking the time at 18h59 when we exited out plaashek.

    Thanks for shedding the light, so to speak8)

    (edit) definitely the same thing, if looking at the GPS ' time on the video. My bakkie horlosie is maybe 2/3 minutes te laat.
