Watch: Mysterious 'Fireball' Streaks Through Sky In Germany

Sightings of fireballs were also reported in France, Italy and USA.


Earlier this week, people in Germany were left puzzled as a mysterious 'fireball' was spotted speeding through the sky. According to the Daily Mail, the unidentified flying object was seen as far away as Italy and Switzerland. The fire department of the town of Hoechen shared a video of the fireball on Twitter, terming it a meteorite. It shows a glowing ball streaking through the sky, changing colours from a dim white to a brighter green and then blue.

According to the International Meteor Organization, this is the most reported fireball event from Europe with over 1,150 reported sightings.

Watch the video below:
 
There are speculations that the meteorite's appearance could be linked to the Taurid Meteor Shower, especially since fireball sightings were also reported over France and USA.

'We can only say that it was not an aircraft,' German air traffic control spokesman Christian Hoppe said to the Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail reports that it is unclear whether the object, if it was a meteor, crashed somewhere or burned out in the sky.
