Location: Stroud (UK/England),
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 mins
Flame ball flew down the Stroud valley

I was walking back to my house in Randwick early in the morning of New Years day. I was just crossing the railway bridge at an area called Cashes Green when I saw what I thought was a meteor.

It was a flame ball that I thought was going to hit the top of the Randwick hill.

It was travelling fast. Rather than hit the ground, the ball straightened and then headed over to the River Seven. Moving very fast it headed up into the sky and was out of sight in 1 minute. It made no sound.

There were no other people around and everyone I told the story said ok and rolled their eyes as though I made it up.
