Tuba A.-Belgium:
At 12 July 2011, around 3 o'clock ( i don't know the exact time anymore)
I saw a hugeee meteor, that just kept chaning of color, in green red, yellow and blue.
I saw it in the norther direction, It had a big tale.
I'm not sure of what i saw, but I've never seen something like this and I really want to know what it was, because I couldn't find any information on the internet.
Excuse me for my bad English, I hope to get as soon as possible an answer of you.
Thank you     thank you Tuba! No satellite or rocket reentries indicated so this likely was a fairly large rock from space.

Julia B.-Central UK:
Hi. This won't help you find it but i saw this meteor from a little village in the centre of England. It was fluorescent blue seemed massive.
lasted about 3 to 4 seconds and appeared that close I waited for the explosion.
Wow never seen any thing quite like it. I was facing due south at about 2.15 am to 2.20 am this morning. It went from upper right to lower left.
Just wondered if it actually hit earth.  Happy hunting.
Ju     thank you Julia! Debris from fireballs this size sometimes impact the Earth. Not yet sure whether this did.

Nigel S.-Isle Of Thanet, England:
Just found your site, because i was confused about what i saw last night, 12th July 2011, at around 02.30 am. I had just woke to make a cup of tea and walked inot my kitchen, opend the roller bling and saw this golf ball sized green coloured ball, with a slight tail, shoot past. Absolulty no sound, the sky was cloudy so the fireball looked like a luminescent ball. Its speed was tremendous. Judging by the tree in front of my back window and how quickly it came into view and then was out if sight. My kitchen window faces south west sp the ball was travelling NE  to SW. I live in South East England, in Kent, on the iSle of Thanet. Judging by, what i think are the sightings from Florida, this may have been the same object. I'm just so glad someone else saw it and i have someone to tell.
Thank you     Great report Nigel, and thank you!

On the morning of 19/7/11 I saw at least a football sized fireball bright orange plummeting down towards the cliffs of peacehaven it's tail flame was at least 60ft long and back of flame was widening Bright orange. when I looked out to see I could see what looked like an orange glow coming from sea definitely not a vessel. When I called police In morning to see if anyone else had
seen anything no one had. 20 mins pater the coast guard called asked for my description and then told me there were meteorites last night. I've seen meteorites before but not this big.
