An incredible fireball descended over Russia, briefly turning night into day and sparking panic as witnesses suggested it could be a bomb or UFO. Many speculate, however, it was simply a meteor, specifically a "bolide," a meteor that explodes in the atmosphere.
A mysterious bright flash turned night into day over a huge area of Russia - sparking fears the US had launched a strike on North Korea.
Many meteors have made dramatic appearances over Russia in recent memory, most notably the 2013 Valentines Day meteor over the Chelyabinsk region, which injured thousands when it exploded in the sky.
An extremely large, bright meteor (or "fireball") was seen and filmed falling down from the sky about a week ago, and hundreds of people reported it to AMSMeteors.org, with one witness even uploading a video of it, and famous paranormal investigator Amy Bruni tweeting about it, and informing TexasUFOs that she saw the fireball from Bristol, Rhode Island:
The fireball appeared to streak like a meteor, but iI'e NEVER seen a meteor of that size. Maybe it was VERY close to earth?
Witnessing a large space rock fall from the sky is always an exciting and beautiful event, but are we getting bigger and more frequent fireballs than in the past? And could these meteor events be tied to natural weather here on Earth? A few days before the California wildfires for example, a large fireball was seen falling in the area, and possibly landing nearby, and there was also meteor activity reported in Texas before the hurricanes.

If you've seen a bright fireball or meteor light up the sky, report your sighting!
More than a dozen reports of a large meteorite or fireball over the San Francisco area and Northern California were reported to AMSMeteors.org. The event occurred less than a day before deadly wildfires struck the nearby wine country. The fireball was reported as extremely large and appearing to fall. Wildfires and droughts tend to be cyclical in nature, but this is also true for meteorites:
Is it possible that shooting stars cause weather events here on Earth? That is certainly what ancient people believed. If this is true, that could explain why natural disasters like flooding, earthquakes, and yes, even wildfires, are not so easily predicted or avoided by meteorologists.
So far, at least 35 people have lost their lives in the California wildfires, which firefighters continue to battle. Typically, deaths due to meteorite impact result from smoke inhalation versus direct impact. However in February 2016, a meteorite directly struck a man in India and killed him, just two years after the Chelyabinsk Meteor Impact that injured hundreds.
Strange shooting stars have also recently been spotted in Texas, Kansas and Hawaii.
With so many people giving out apocalyptic predictions about climate change, one can only wonder if this fate is indeed written in our stars.
Share your theories on this sighting and more in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram! Are all fireballs meteorites, or could they be crashing satellites or ships? It's probably worth noting that some of the more epic and well-documented UFO crashes are often reported as meteor events by the mainstream media.

According to the American Meteor Society and photos and videos surfacing online, an extremely large fireball zoomed over the heads of British Columbia residents a few nights ago, not long after historic flooding in Texas, and a historic eclipse in the US. Is nature trying to tell us something?
Check out the great footage captured of this giant fireball, which could be a space rock (meteorite) or perhaps even some man-made space junk:

An eerie and sometimes golden cloud hovered over a neighborhood in Brazil, according to footage that has been circulating online.
Could this strange funnel-shaped haze be man-made, perhaps a product of area pollution or even an explosion, as we may have recently seen in China?
Or could this be an meteorite, plane, or satellite crashing?
