Location of Sighting: Durham, England
Date of Sighting: January 10, 2018
Time of Sighting: 3 AM Local Time
Description: I would like to know what my daughter and granddaughter witnessed at 3 AM on the 10th of January 2018. Both were on their way to bed when a bright light lit up the hallway. Both were thinking that it was a prowler. My daughter tried putting the house alarm on a couple of times, but it would not set. Looking out the bedroom window they both saw what was described as a fire ball the size of a football glowing very bright with like sparkles coming from it. Also the hedge up the path looked as if Christmas lights were covering the bushes. My daughter said as she glanced across to a neighbor’s she saw what looked like colored fairy lights from a Christmas tree. They both watched this. Both were trying to work out what they both were witnessing and both were very afraid. My daughter said she felt as though she was on the verge of another dimension as if she were being shown the Christmas tree with the colored lights. She felt she was looking back in time. My granddaughter said she was very afraid. When daylight came there was no sign in the bushes or on the garden that anything had happened. If you could give your opinion on what you may think happened, we would be pleased to hear from you. Thank you. This happened in Durham, England.

This sounds like a meteorite that they saw. A lot of people don’t seem to recognize these things when they see them even with thousands of them that burn up in our atmosphere daily.
I don’t think that this was a meteorite because it was stationary and local (level with the witness’s house).
