Bright Orange Light Observed Over Culcheth Warrington UK

Date: December 25, 2010
Time: 00:20 hours.

I just found this article after doing a search. A few minutes ago, at around 00:20 on 25th December 2010, I saw a bright orange light in the sky heading south southeast. It was visible for around 40 seconds and in this instance did look like an object burning up. It had a flame orange appearance and was naked eye resolvable as approximately 1/8th diameter of the nearby moon. So it looks to be perhaps different to the original post, but still spectacular and quite a coincidence.

Additional Information:

Hi, it was Culcheth in Warrington in UK. And slight correction, it was travelling south, southeast (not west). It looked like a classic fireball, if so it was a privilege to happen to catch such a rare event!
