Fireball Meteor or space debris over Doha, Qatar / Saudi Arabia ~9:00pm 30APR2011

Fireball Meteor or space debris over Doha, Qatar 10.30pm? 30APR2011
Low horizontal trajectory with flaming tail?  First thoughts it was flame from aircraft engine but no noise then i could see it breaking or burning up over the sea. Did not think meteors would travel in what seemed horizontal path in an easterly direction

Bahrain at approximately 9pm
My friend and I saw it in Bahrain at approximately 9pm. It was very bright and moving extremely quickly. At first we thought it might be a firework, but realised it was much too bright and fast moving. We west facing west and it was moving in a north to south direction. The following day, I saw a programme on the History Channel about meteors and meteorites and have no doubt what we saw was a very bright meteor.

Dhahran, Ash Sharqiyah, Saudi Arabia arrived from google.com on "Latest Worldwide Meteor/Meteorite News" by searching for saudi meteor.


Janabiyah, Bahrain 9pm, 30th April 2011
My neighbors and I saw it approximately 9pm, 30th April 2011 in Bahrain.
I just thought it was a huge shooting star at first, but then my neighbors said it had to be a meteor. It was traveling horizontally in an easterly direction and quite slow, so there was enough time to see it properly. It looked like a bright white fireball which had a tail and it eventually disintegrated and disappeared. We had never seen anything like this before., what an amazing experience! :) Regards, Anna

Yep, we saw it too, same as described...definitely closer to 9:00 than 10:30. We were looking east out toward the Pearl and it moved from south to north across the horizon.

Last month I saw from the backyard of my friend's new house here in Doha 3 meteor-like objects forming triangular formation. Not sure what it was because there were 3 of them and traveling at the same distance until i couldn't see them anymore because of wall fence. My friend Ed saw it also.
