At least it never made a huge bang like the one over Scotland last month.
I never saw it here on the Humber, maybe a map of where it was visible could be made?

I was 'lucky' enough to see it...then listening to 5live on my way home, they had some Aussie girl on, explaining what it was. I'm not sure, however i think she mentioned a website, that tracks sightings, so might be worth a listen from 5am onwards, if that service is available on a podcast...

Ah fireballs. That brings me on to Fireball XL5 which was devised by Gerry Anderson who also devised Thunderbirds which had a character called Lady Penelope who was voiced by Sylvia Anderson - Gerry's wife who has just died. R.I.P. Lady Penelope

Has anyone been up to the sandpits on Horsell Common to check? (Best to be sure! :lol:)
