Fireball over UK

A fireball that thousands of people witnessed exploding across the sky in the UK was likely a meteor entering the atmosphere, and spreading debris on to the Earth’s surface as it broke up.

On Sunday evening (28 February), the meteor fireball, moving at incredible speed, was forced to slow considerable as it encountered resistance from the atmosphere. This created heat, which appeared as a blazing fireball.
