GEOMAGNETIC STORM IN PROGRESS
Kp Index is at level 6
Scale of G2
Moderate
Power systems: high-latitude power systems may experience voltage alarms, long-duration storms may cause transformer damage.
Spacecraft operations: corrective actions to orientation may be required by ground control; possible changes in drag affect orbit predictions.
Other systems: HF radio propagation can fade at higher latitudes

METEORITE OVER SCOTLAND

Photo By By Hannah Dolman
People across Tayside were speculating last night after a streak of light appeared in the sky.
 
Rachel Malcolm sent a picture of the bright line in the darkening night sky to the Tele.
 
She said: “Just saw this in Invergowrie.
 
“It’s like something burning up in the atmosphere.”

Dr Robert Massey, deputy executive director at the Royal Astronomical Society, said: “At first sight the trail in the image looks like a sunlit aircraft contrail — a vapour trail — set against a darkening sky. When the sun is low in the sky these stand out, and appear much more prominent than in the middle of the day.
 
“A meteor trail can be bright and linger, but will typically break up with the movement of air in the upper atmosphere.
 
“There is an outside chance this shows a trail of that kind, but to be sure, I would need to know how long the exposure was, whether there was a fast moving streak — a shooting star — before the photo was taken, and how long the trail stayed in place.”

Massive FIREBALL Over London, UK

UFO
Ali Osman caught this strange burning orb over London on camera
Ali Osman was going through a daily routine with his one year old girl when he encountered the bizarre object outside his window. 
 
Civil engineer Ali, from Erith, south east London, snapped these pictures of the orb, which resembles a massive fireball or flaming meteorite. 
 
The married dad-of-one said: “I woke up with my daughter around 6am. 
 
“I always have a look out the window in the mornings to show my daughter the birds and noticed this strange object in the sky. 
 
“At first I thought it was a plane that leaves a trial behind it but realised quickly it wasn’t because it was just hovering. 
 
“There were other planes flying high near the object but the object was above the planes and was stationary.

UFO
The UFO looked like a meteor or rocket, but was hovering in the sky
“I always have a look out the window in the mornings to show my daughter the birds and noticed this strange object in the sky. 
 
“At first I thought it was a plane that leaves a trial behind it but realised quickly it wasn’t because it was just hovering. 
 
“There were other planes flying high near the object but the object was above the planes and was stationary. 
 
“I observed it for around 20 minutes. I thought it might have been the Chinese Space lab [Tiangong-2, which was launched on the same day] but the launch happened at 2pm GMT. 
 
“Personally, I’m not sure what the object was. All I know is that it had to have been a massive object to appear as big as it did in the sky.”
