    If the article is correct, it isn't a meteor.

    I agree with the end of the article, it looks like an airplane and its contrail. I see this sort of thing all the time here in Europe. The contrail gets lit up a bright orange or red near the horizon just after sunset, it looks like a very slow moving meteorite. I'll snap a picture next time I spot one.

    This belongs in the pseudoscience forum.

    I did, I still say that I believe it is a meterorite which either way, isn't strange at all. Why label something "strange" when there's a viable explanation for it?:shrug:

    Because"it is not moving anywhere near fast enough" it seems unlikely to be a meteor.

    BTW, meteors are an atmospheric phenomenon and only become meteorites when they reach the ground.

    Because UFO posts belong in pseudoscience.

    Astronomy has to do with stars, asterisms, and astrophysics.

    Pseudoscience is the proper forum for discussion of UFOs.

    If a meteoroid does not completely disintegrate in the astmosphere and pieces of it land on Earth intact, we call the surviving fragments meteorites.
    So I don't know if this was or wasn't a meteroid then.

    Blobrana, is your definition of troll anyone you can't refute using science or logic? Or is it anyone you've put on ignore because you're afraid to debate them?

    Sorry if there is a separate forum for UFOs called pseudoscience. Not my fault.

    By the way, nice posts in Earth Sciences regarding Arctic Oil and Mantle Plumes. Very interesting stuff.

    Given that the discussion before you posted was trying to figure out what natural phenomenon it was, including comets and meteor - subjects of astronomy - I wondered what had bothered you so far.

    UFO reports should be confined to the Pseudoscience thread. But since this one is here, I'd say that it looks very like a contrail illuminated by the Sun. Why would anyone think this was a UFO?

    UFO means unidentified flying object. So until one is sure what an object is, it is unidentified.
