People across the UK have reported seeing a large “fireball” fall. The meteorite fell yesterday. The huge space object was spotted in the night sky shortly before 10:00 pm on Sunday.

“Has anyone seen a massive fireball over Birmingham at about 9:50 pm UK tonight?”
“Anyone else just saw that meteor flying over the sky in Liverpool, I thought I was seeing the coming of absolute madness – a ball of fire flying across the sky.”
