`Huge fireball` appears over Britain
London: An unusually bright slow-moving light appeared in the night sky above northern Britain, a media report said Sunday.
Police forces across Britain have been inundated with calls after what is believed to be a meteor was spotted in the sky around 10 p.m. Saturday, a newspaper reported.
Thousands of people spotted the chunk - or possibly chunks - of fist-sized space rock burning up while coming through the earth`s atmosphere.
The Met Office received dozens of calls within an hour of the light first appearing.
A spokesman for Strathclyde Police said the force had been "inundated" with calls about a bright object in the sky across the west of Scotland.
The Kielder Observatory also reported the sighting of a "huge fireball" travelling from north to south over Northumberland at 9.41 p.m.
