I saw similar once a few years ago - incredible to behold. In that case I believe it was a planned de-orbit of something or other.

The "New Years Eve fireball" has a page at the International Meteor Organisation:

 

I found a wonderful photo linked off that page, too...

The local newspaper is carrying a report on it now:

Nice clip here too:

(Not sure why my post is coming up as 'hidden'? How do I unhide it?)

Probably hidden cos you had the letters 'ufo' in your text. This will probably get hidden for a while too ha ha

Well the newspapers do like to include terms like that for click-bait, but it wasn't deliberate on my part! It just happened to be included in the URL.

Annoyingly, the webcam in our car did not record this particular journey..... although it did record the one before and the one after it!
