Footage of falling meteors
« on: April 26, 2009, 10:30:31 PM »
Security cameras in Northern Ireland may shed some light on the cause of a massive fireball in the sky on Sunday 5th April. The shooting star was reported at about 0030 BST by people living as far apart as Donegal and Cork. David Moore chairman of Astronomy Ireland said they were fairly certain it was a rock from space which could have landed somewhere in Ireland and added that his group was very keen to hear from anyone who has footage of what is suspected to be a meteor falling. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/northern_ireland/7985093.stm If you witnessed the event please go to www.astronomy.ie to list your sighting.
