RemarksThis was very low in comparison to any I’ve ever seen before. It was like the headlights of a car travelling very fast but with lots of fragments of sparks trailing behind. I live on the castlereagh hills with great views over Belfast. This came from a south eastern direction heading north west. It wasn’t completely dark outside yet and it travelled towards a bank of evening clouds over cave hill in Belfast. I seen it for maybe 3 seconds and then it disappeared in those clouds. I have never seen one so low and in such detail. It was breathtaking.
