Yup! At about 10.45pm after a stint of baby-sitting I was sat at the lights at Hearsall Common, Coventry. Saw a light moving slowly, looked quite low not far away, so I thought it was a cop helicopter. Then there was two of them and I thought can't be two copters so close, then a whole line of them looking like flames, I got scared then thinking a plane was coming down. Traffic started moving, and as I turned a corner I then though I'd seen a reflection in my windscreen and thought nothing more.

Now I see that hundreds of folk saw this, but if we all saw the same metoer it must have been very high up and far off, yet it looked to me like it was travelling slowly less than say 500ft up and seemed to be coming down just north of Coventry. If so many people saw it it must have been huge??

Might have been a meteor breaking up, or an old satelite.
