Anyone else see that giant green fireball in the sky tonight? July 2016

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.

this thread isn't real without pictures.
The prizes are a bottle of f*!@#$% SCOTCH and a box of cheap f!@#$#$ CIGARS!

Too many people! Almost all of the world's problems are due to overpopulation. The rest are due to religion.

50% of the world's wild animals have disappeared in the last 50 years. Did you eat them, or eat their house?

1 reported in Taiwan:

Not daily occurrences but they do occur . Some years ago I was in heavy traffic in the early evening going back to SF from Oakland and there was a very bright fireball that whizzed overhead for about 20 seconds. Super fast and super bright. That was reported to be a meteor as well .

Fireballs do enter the Earth's atmosphere and some hit ground too.

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...

We saw it, we saw it!! Sun early evening, can't remember the time. We were standing in Dulan Sugar Factory car park.

I saw the very end of it 1sec, my friend saw more, 5-7 secs.
It was dramatically large, chlorine green, east-to-westish trajectory, to the north of us for sure.
It's raining again here.

A wicked wind whips up the hill, a handful of hopeful words.
