‘UFO’ Spotted Over UK!
An unidentified flying object that was seen streaking through the sky over the United Kingdom on Wednesday has been identified. The fireball — which left residents of northern England, Northern Ireland and Scotland speculating it may have been piloted by an extraterrestrial being — was actually a meteor, according to the U.K. Meteor Network. “We’ve analyzed it from many more angles,” says the network’s John Maclean. “It is definitely a meteor. Probably a small piece of an asteroid that’s broken off an asteroid. It came in at an asteroidal orbit.” However, it should be noted that the Meteor Network has no way of confirming its assessment; the meteor crashed into the Atlantic Ocean shortly after it was spotted, Maclean says.
