The group tweeted: “That’s not reliable. Not enough observations from side-on.
“So it could still be over the Bristol Channel and not be inconsistent with this. Also not consistent with #sonicboom”
People across England and Wales flooded social media yesterday with reports, video clips and pictures of the meteor.
Steve Jones tweeted from Wales: “Just seen a meteorite or similar shoot past Abercastle towards Mathry, Pembry – bright white ball with an iridescent tail (metallic green and white) – very fast. No, I haven’t been drinking…”
Another person said: “Wow, it could have been a meteor then? Strangest sound I’ve ever heard, (apart from free form jazz, obvs)”
