Meteor seen over Spalding and Cowbit at dawn on Sunday, UK observation group confirms

If you were driving between Spalding and Crowland on Sunday morning, you may have gone through a "what was that?" moment.

Graham Emery, of Weston Hills, was driving on the A16 bypass at about 5.50am when he saw what looked like "a bright fireball coming down from the sky".

It was a "blink and you’ll miss it" moment for Mr Emery, as well as an estimated 180 other witnesses across England who notified police and coastguard about what they saw, according to the UK Meteor Observation Network (UKMON).
