Mystery of the glowing orb: Bizarre fireball that splits in two could be a meteorite burning up in Earth’s atmosphere

By RICHARD GRAY FOR MAILONLINE

UFO hunters have claimed the bright orb may have been some sort of escape pod from a crashing ship.

However, others have said it is more likely to have been a meteorite breaking apart in the atmosphere.

There have been several sightings of meteorite fireballs in the US over the past week, with many reports coming from California.

The past couple of days have also seen astronomers enjoying the peak of the annual Quadrantids meteor shower.

The fireball was spotted by Ken Roberts while he was driving home from work in southern California.

He said: ‘I was driving home after work when this UFO or whatever you call it caught my eye.

‘I pulled over in front of somebody’s house to film it. I would have got a better shot but I didn’t want to jump these people’s fence.

‘Anyway I don’t know what the hell to make of it. Couldn’t have been a plane cause there was no noise. And I never heard a crash after either.

‘The Orb thing flew straight up into the sky and disappeared.’
