RemarksI've observed a number of 'shooting stars' throughout my life.. But this appeared very bright, very low, with a showering tail.. I thought it was a firework at first, but realised it wasn't.. I had a good clear view of the sky, it was a dark sky.. It appeared to shoot in from nowhere.. Just in front of me.. To My left.. falling down at a very shallow angle.. I was driving a National Express coach towards Middlesbrough at the time..
