A bright green light “travelling faster than any plane” was seen in the sky above Norfolk at 11pm on Sunday night.

A reader from Upper Stoke, near Poringland, “saw a really bright green light - which seemed to be torpedo-shaped, travelling across the sky towards Norwich, at great speed but absolutely silently.

“I could see it travelling through and above the clouds as I could see cloud beneath the light. It vanished completely after about three seconds.”

“It was travelling faster than any plane I have seen and was so bright I initially thought firework but it was a) too high; b) there were no other fireworks and c) it made no noise or explosion.

“Guessing this was a meteor of some kind but wondered if anyone else has reported anything and it would help preserve my sanity if they did.”

  • I was sitting on my patio cooling off when then the entire place lit up in a blue green color, I looked strait up and saw what was obviously a satellite burning up directly over my head and bits coming off it just like a firework, that was at 11.01 by my clock. Then at 11.05 and thirty seconds I could hear items hitting the ground in southerly direction and toward the field next to our property, certainly the sound came from that direction. On reflection it could have been further away and of course hitting harder, anyway there were a number of thuds in quick succession probably about twenty of so. NR21

  • Don't Panic folks, it was just the Mother in law returning from her Holiday, on her broomstick.

  • might be something to do with the Perseid Meteor Showers that are currently going on, or maybe the little green men are on the way!

  • How many other people have to verify a sighting to prove existence occurred?

  • A flash caught my eye and when I looked up I could see a torpedo shaped object flying very high & travelling very fast. I could see no trail and at first thought it was a hot air balloon but it was going to fast for it to be that.

  • I saw a torpedo shaped object in the sky over Hunstanton yesterday. It was travelling very fast and left no trail that I could see.
