I saw this all the way in Abu Dhabi and it looked a lot closer than where it was spotted. It was a spectacular bright orange before it burned up completely in our atmosphere! :D

I saw this last night in the sky above Spain (south of Zafra, Extremadura). Was pretty amazing and totally unexpected. Just happened to be looking up at the sky at the right moment

Yes, saw it too from my rooftop terrace in Ojén, the south of Spain.
It looked like a multicolored, slow moving rock with a long lasting and quit broad tail. The colors green, red and Orange where visible.
