Several days after the August 21st, 2017 solar eclipse over the US, a gigantic meteor was seen over the northeastern US, garnering nearly 1,000 reports on AMSMeteors.org, the highest count of 2017. Since then, a healthy stream of fireballs have been passing through Earth's atmosphere. Most notably, perhaps, a fireball event in Europe on September 21st was reported by over 400 people.
The day after that, in the Los Angeles area, a meteor was also reported by many, and video, photos and a drawing was also posted of a similar, but possibly unidentified object:
I was walking my dog at 10:50pm, I like to start gaze, when I noticed a plane flying towards me from the SE sky. I stopped and watched the plane for 1-2 minutes. I started to think about what if one day I see a UFO.
During the same time frame, in Milan, Italy, a very curious photograph was taken of a large ball of light and although the description was short, the event apparently happened the day after the well-documented major meteor event in Europe, so could be related:
What do you think of these UFO... ahem, meteor?.... sightings? Are we just getting a wave of space rocks, or could these objects be crashing satellites or even weapons of war? Are these UFO sightings related to the meteor events happening around the globe right now?
