Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

Photos? Video? Links?

I'd imagine it's probably a meteor, or maybe falling space junk?

I see many news reports from April to June about sightings of green fireball in the sky in the US, notably in California and Florida. However, no one looked up the sky with a camera last night in Taiwan I guess...
Don't confuse me with your reasonableness.

I heard something around that time that sounded like fireworks (to me) or thunder (my wife).

Sounds like a classic meteorite sighting which I would have killed to have seen..darn it.

As a UFO buff I can recommend folks to look up the green fireball scare of the 1950s and 60s in the US. It was quite the rage back then.


....maybe ...they're back.
