Initial Meteor Sighting Report-
08NOV2015 L. Fredericks Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape, South Africa 21:00 about 3-4 sec duration from streak across the sky to explosion and fragments fading away Facing south, direction of travel was E-W bright blue/white lights, first one flash then several consecutive flashes about a second later caused by the meteor exploding as it broke into pieces which is what caused the very bright flashes. sounded like fireworks going of, loud boom. Doubt there was any impact as the meteor exploded quite spectacularly as bright as lightning during thunderstorm but more blueish in colour definite fragmentation, glowing orange-red as it burnt out There was a search launched in the Patensie area by the Kouga municipality, which was later called off but even if the search is to be resumed i strongly doubt that anything will be found in the area. the explosion was kilometers high up in the air. in Port Elizabeth, which is about 60 Kilometers from Patensie, you had to look almost straight up to witness the explosion. eye witnesses believe there was an impact but that is probably because the explosion was seen before it was heard, since the meteor would have been travelling much faster than the speed of sound
