“My first thought was it could have been a meteor, but I doubted it because it was so low.

“It was too white and fast moving to have been a firework or Chinese lantern.”

The fireball was also reportedly seen by people in Ireland, Scotland, and Yorkshire.

So far there has been no confirmation as to what the object was, but the most likely causes would be a meteor or piece of space debris entering the Earth’s atmosphere.
