This report has been linked to the following event: Event 4478-2019
Observer
NameMark M
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was in my flat (top floor) talking on the telephone and looking out the window when a white ball with a bright trail behind it “fell” and disappeared behind a large hill (knockagh monument hill) - the sky was quite red and bright but this was very clear. At first I thought it was a shooting star but it didn’t move as fast as a shooting star. It almost resembled a firework falling back to earth but as the hill is over half a mile away and it fell “behind” it, it is highly doubtful that is what it was.
