'Stunning' fireball seen over Bristol channel

By Estel Farell Roig

A fireball was seen over the Bristol channel last night (May 11).

According to the UK Meteor Network, a fireball is a bright meteor streaking across the sky. They come in a variety of speeds and colours, and occur randomly throughout the year.

UK Fireball Network said: "Stunning bright #fireball last night at 23:39 over the #bristolchannel was caught on a couple of our cameras. Did you see it?"

In other parts of the UK, the meteor was described as being like “someone setting off a white flare”, reports the Mirror. The meteor was spotted in several places around the UK, with one man in St Albans, Hertfordshire, having seen it at around 12.40am this morning.

Another witness, in South Wales, said he saw it, describing the phenomenon as like "someone setting off a white flare beside me."

UK Meteor Network said they received over 200 public reports after a fireball last night shortly before midnight. In January, people across the UK reported seeing a flaming meteor light up the sky - as shocked spectators stood in awe of the spectacle.

Spectators saw the blue and green flaming rock over large parts of Scotland, as well as parts of England, and Wales. After shooting across the sky the meteor eventually burned up in the earth’s atmosphere before its debris crashed to the ground.
