Yes, relatives in Scotland say they saw the exact same thing. Saw nothing myself as I was not paying attention,

As posted in my status update, around 15 minutes ago I saw a bright blue white light appear low in the eastern sky, it passed rapidly to my north (heading westwards) and turned yellow trailing material that looked to be on fire whilst the main fireball descended....My first thought is that it was an airliner crashing, but considering Marcus-Surfer down in Swansea saw the same thing, I can only guess it was a large meteor burning up in the upper atmosphere, although it seemed to be moving much slower than a 'shooting star'...Well, one of the damndest things I've ever seen!!

Just brilliant... Looked out of the window at the right time. Lots of people on twitter saying the same thing. Looked like an aircraft at first with white light then it became broken and red and became many fireballs that were moving slowly across the sky, it lasted about 8 seconds.

ok, now it's getting a little bit odd.....my son phoned me around 15 mins ago talking about the fireball, and midway through the conversation I saw a faint blue flash way out to my WNW.....I thought maybe distant lightning, but we have clear skies and no signs of any storm activity near the UK.....odd indeed

The Eve Of The War

Journalist: No one would have believed, in the last years of the nineteenth century that human affairs were being watched from the timeless worlds of space. No one could have dreamed that we were being scrutinized, as someone with a microscope studies creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. Few men even considered the possibility of life on other planets and yet, across the gulf of space, minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this Earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely, they drew their plans against us.

At midnight on the twelfth of August, a huge mass of luminous gas erupted from Mars and sped towards Earth. Across two hundred million miles of void, invisibly hurtling towards us were the first of the missiles that were to bring so much calamity to Earth. As I watched, there was another jet of gas. It was another missile starting on its way.

And that’s how it was for the next ten nights. A flare, spurting out from Mars – bright green, drawing a green mist behind it – a beautiful, but somehow disturbing sight. Ogilvy the astronomer, assured me we were in no danger. He was convinced that there could be no living thing on that remote forbidding planet.....

What are the chances! Just been outside getting some shots of the stars, playing around with settings on the camera. Just pressed the shutter for a 20 second exposure when it suddenly when very bright, looked up thinking it was a firework but it was completely silent. Happened to get it perfectly framed in my shot, cannot believe the timing!

About a minute later there was two loud rumbles, like an explosion, was that it crash landing?!

Cant remember how to post pics, anyone help?
