Fireball in the sky?

Ok i'm in Wiltshire visiting my parents, and my mother was looking the window about 10 minutes ago and saw a red light in the sky, I looked and at first I thought it was a solar eclipse or something, it was pretty big.

I took a photo, but didn't turn out too good I will upload.

This thing then shot off at very fast speed leaving a trail behind it.

I know Wiltshire is UFO capital of the world, but I aint a a drunk Wurzel! lol

Anyone else see it?

Don't blame her for escaping Chippenham, she shouldn't come back lol. It's like a set of a horror film around here, it's hard to see anyone who looks remotely normal

I think that might actually be the camera because it's nighttime
#25
Maybe it's a more sinister explanation, maybe this red light killed these blackbirds! lol

Everytime I think of travelling it's always overseas.

Going to Turkey and Syria for a while in about 10 days, I need a bit of warmth

I bet Manchester is alright though, I used to love the music scene, maybe there's some good clubs there
