Experience Level3/5
RemarksWe were sat chatting in remaote area and the fireball appeared directly in ftont of us and fell quickly to the ground in the direction of Shelford Toos Raf Newton Base and appreared to dissapear in the ground but this was the effect of being on the other side of the hill to imoact. It happened very quickly but i grabbed my boyfriend and shouted LOOK and luckily he was already facing and saw the fireball also although i saw more colours to it that he. It appeared to be a bright white glowing ball size of the moon with a pale pink hue around the out3r of the ball. The rrqin was huge also white centre fading outward side to side with pale pink a hint of pale yellow mixed to the pink amd pale blue on the outer edges peatering to a point at the end if the train which was following the fureball as it fell staight vertically downward toward the earth. We were very shocked and confused and thought perhaos that as it was in the direction of the raf airbase that it was an explosion or bomb or something similar. It wasnt until i googled it i realised we saw sometjing so special and truely beautiful. Was an amazing sight to share with my boyfriend and to be able to share the exoerience and chat about it made it more special to us both. We are both still very excited about what we saw .☄️
