    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

    Maybe it's a more sinister explanation, maybe this red light killed these blackbirds! lol
