Was heading south from the eastern side of the island and saw this coming towards us, thought it was the helicopter, it was gliding so smoothly and sort of went to the side of us as we stopped on the side of the road and then we noticed how it had other stars and fireballs/meteors on the side of it and trailing behind it green and orange and bits of purple as it headed north east! Amazing sight to see!

While sitting in Dukes restaurant on Grand Cayman I witnessed what appeared to be 5-6 meteors flying in a cluster for about 45 seconds across the sky. They were moving quite slow and everyone in the restaurant stopped and was watching it. One of the craziest sites I have ever seen for sure!
