15FEB2014 Sue Gregory Goring by sea, West Sussex, United Kingdom 18.31 GMT pm Approx 4 to 6 seconds I was facing West. Appeared about 50 degrees above horizon travelling north to south before buildings obscured view. Very bright yellowy white ball, large orange flaming tail and left a small vapour trail. Was below the cloud cover as it illuminated the clouds above, did not hear anything as travelling in my car with music on. Smaller version of the sun. I did not see any change at all, nothing falling off. Asked other people in the area if they saw anything, nobody else seemed to see it and said I imagined it, but I know what I saw and it was a magnificent sight. Pity we can't replay what we see like a video film.

15FEB2014 Mr GORDON EDEN GRANTHAM, UK 1800Z Less than 1 second SOUTH I was travelling South on the A1 when I saw this large fireball falling out of the sky in front of me. It had an enormous head (those I have seen before have only been thin streaks and quite high up in the sky). This one was fairly close to the ground. It only lasted for a second or so. I did not hear anything as I was in my car at the time. It appeared about 2/3rds the size of the moon. Of course, distance to the object would be a factor in its apparent size and I am not suggesting that it was anywhere near the size of the moon. Yes some fiery objects at the tail end I was driving, unable to stop and made report when I arrived home about 30-40 minutes later.
