Schoolgirl Captures Video of a Strange Sparking Fireball Flying Over England?
Today we’re headed to Northhamptonshire, England to look at a peculiar video that was shot by an 11 year-old schoolgirl. On June 1st, 2014, Katie Real and her sister Macie were at home playing with their mother’s laptop. They looked out the window and that’s when they noticed a bright fireball flying around not to far from their home. Katie grabbed her mother’s laptop and began filming the fireball as it flew through the air erratically, leaving behind a trail of smoke and sparks. About half way through the video, the fireball turns to a red-ish color and eventually flies down towards the ground, disappearing from view. The girls’ mother, 30 year-old Fiona Fearon, wasn’t home when the video was captured, but she says the girls were eager to show her the video once she got home. “Initially we thought it could be a plane on fire but it appeared to be dancing across the sky. It was an amazing sight.” Fiona said. “It looked like it went crashing into the field and that’s the end – but there was no noise.” She called the nearby airfield and asked if they had anything to do with the fireball, but they said no. “It was pretty scary.” Katie said. “I’d love to know what it was.”
The picture quality is actually pretty good considering this was recorded on a laptop. In fact, some videos that were shot with a camcorder don’t even look this good, and that’s pretty sad. But anyway, let’s talk about the fireball. Some have suggested that the fireball was just a kite with a tail, or something attached to the tail, that had been set aflame. Even though it seems to fly around like a kite, I don’t think that’s what this is. The fireball looks too big to be something attached to the tail of a kite. Some have also suggested that this was an RC plane with flares attached to it. If you take a look at this video, you’ll see that even though they looks somewhat similar, the fireball looks to be much larger. While it is more believable than the kite theory, unless someone attached a large number of flares to an RC plane, I don’t think that that’s what the fireball was either. Maybe it was some kind of crazy firework. Or it could’ve been ball lightning. While I don’t think this has anything to do with aliens, I’m pretty stumped as to what the fireball really was, but what do you think? Is the fireball somehow related to alien activity, was it something like an RC plane with flares attached to it, or could it have been something weather-related, such as ball lightning?
