Initial Sighting Reports:
30AUG2012 Lakrime Castiglion Fiorentino, AREZZO, ITALY 20:50:00 3-5 seconds Facing South, it was going West (right) No sound. Looked like a classical falling star but was much bigger, brighter and a little slower Moon Yes. At the tail end it changed to a reddish colour and I saw a handful of fragments falling off. Never seen such a thing. We were in a field talking with friends when my husband pointed to the sky. Not all of us saw it. I was literally shocked to see such a thing.

Thank you all for your meteor sighting reports!

Sonics Heard / Detonations Seen!!! 
- Important Information!  Meteorites Produced Perhaps!

27AUG2012 Toby Service Ludlow, Shropshire, UK 2315 5-7 seconds West to East and appeared to be heading downwards Bright white with long trail behind Very bright. If it wasnt so silent I would have said it was a plane crashing. A small moon maybe No parts falling off as far as i could see but left a trail behind. I only  noticed it because it was so bright, it lit up my garden for a second or two. I turned to see it dissapear behind some houses. Ludlow is a very quiet town, especially late on a Monday evening so although very coincidental, there was also a long low 'boom' about 4/5 mins after the sighting.

27AUG2012 Shirley Taylor N. Herefordshire, UK 23.05 12 -15 secs N - SSE  Facing S Very bright Silver/White, +orange flames Brightest thing I've ever seen There did appear to be bits "spitting" off just before it vanished In 26 years of sky watching up in the hills I have never been so close to a "heavenly" body. About 2-3 mins after going out of sight there was a massive bang that shook the ground, followed by a 2nd bang.

Initial Sighting Reports:
25AUG2012 Maryann Morgan Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada 20:00 - Atlantic Time Zone, UTC - 4 LONGEST I ever saw.  By the time we saw it fly in front of us overhead, NOT high up, it then lasted upwards of 10 seconds but was going strong before we noticed it.  We actually saw the fireball extinguish itself - THAT, I have never seen so clearly before. Northern - Slightly West Appeared large fireball clearly seen, with a tail and no sound associated with it. Mini Sun - we clearly saw the entire end of the fire. Parts could not be seen falling off, but the tail was evident, thick and obvious behind it. I was going for a walk with my daughter and our dog with a flashlight in hand as it was seriously getting dark.  By the time it caught the attention of my peripheral vision, I was astonished that it was so close, so low in the sky and appeared to be only a few stories above where we were.  We watched it for what seemed like forever, for a fireball.  I've seen two other fireballs in my area over the years and the rest were 'shooting stars' but nothing like this one.  In total, it probably lasted between 8 and 12 seconds, maybe even longer and we clearly seen it - the fire, it going out and the ashes that fell as a result.  It was amazing to behold.

25AUG2012 Erin Durkee Enfield, Nova Scotia, Canada 9:00 AST 15-20 seconds Traveling  towards the North East. Perhaps towards Middle or Upper Stewiacke Was like a ball of fire, it seemed very lov and disappeared down behind the trees. just bery bright, like a ball of fire no no

25AUG2012 Reagan McAdam Fredericton 21:00 Atlantic Time ~>10 sec Right to Left (East of Fredericton to North) from Hanwell NB looking toward Fredericton. Orange and yellow (some red). No sound. More than one tail, breaking up, large. Bright as moon. Yes none

25AUG2012 Ginette Garrish Miramichi, NB, Canada approx 2100 Atlantic Daylight Time 7-9 seconds southwest/northwest, left to right, I was facing due west Bright yellow/white, appeared to have several tails of white light just before breaking up Bright as the moon Seemed to break up before fizzling out Appeared closer than I would have expected/was moving quite fast.

25AUG2012 Don LeBlanc Moncton NB, Canada 21:00:00 a couple seconds, then my view was obstructed by a house. I was facing West, it was moving from south to North It was yellow and Orange, the color of fire it was as bright as fireworks there seemed to be parts falling off I steped out on my deck at 9pm to observer the ISS due at 9:04pm. This caught me by suprise as I was turning my camera on. Sorry, no pictures

25AUG2012 Tim O Taymouth, NB 21:10:00 Approx. 15 seconds S-N (facing East) Bright Orange.  At first we thought a shooting star, but it continued across the sky and was at an altitude that seemed lower than a jet going overhead at the same time.  Watched until it extinguished in the North.  No noises were heard. Very bright.  Similar to Moon. There were pieces dropping off as it streaked across the sky, much like sparks. Fascinating event to behold!

25AUG2012 george fury moncton, New Brunswick, Canada 20:50:00 10-15 seconds N-- travelling W>E core was dark and fire was quite wide around and long behind it . it broke of into about 3 -5 piece before burning up in atmosphere was quite bright but there was still day light. could see fire clearly yes was hands down coolest thing i've seen staring at the sky. and i do alot of lookin up :D

25AUG2012 Keith Crabbe Mountain, New Brunswick, Canada 21:10 Atlantic time 8-10 seconds that I could see it Right to Left facing North East Orange in colour and a trail behind, pieces coming off, appeared to be closer than a jet flying over probably due to ts size. not as bright as the sun or moon Yes there were parts falling off behind never witnessed anything like it before, much slower in movement and closer than a shooting star, more colorful also.
