Green fireball lights up the sky over Russia


Posted on Friday, 30 November, 2018 | Comment icon 10 comments

The fireball was seen for miles around. Image Credit: YouTube / Best Sky / VK
The spectacular phenomenon was captured on film over the Russian city of Novosibirsk in Western Siberia.
The fireball, which was seen by dozens of witnesses on Tuesday morning, generated discussion and speculation on social media as users attempted to determine what it could have been.

Multiple videos started to appear shortly afterwards both on YouTube and on Russian site Vkontakte.

While there have been suggestions that the fireball was some sort of weapons test, it is most likely to have been a bolide - a type of extremely bright meteor that explodes in the planet's atmosphere.

Such objects are relatively common, however most are simply never witnessed.

In this case, the spectacle just happened to appear on a clear morning near a populated area.

Is it just me or does Russia seem to have a knack for attracting meteors?

Hi; Dash cams seem very popular in russia...which would account for extra film footage of meteors..

I saw more bright green meteors the last two months then ever before. Earth must be going through some trail of asteroid debris.

Dash cams are not just popular but are required by insurance companies. A good reason many celestial events are caught by cameras.

Yes, and I guess it also helps that Russia is the biggest country on Earth, and the bigger a country is the more likely it is that a random meteor coming towards Earth will come to that country.

Thx didn't know that nickel was burning green too, like copper. It's why I use ''?'' because normally you don't have a lot of copper in it... was thinking that nickel was burning silver-white because it does in flame test...
