A bright ball of fire exploded over the French Antilles, lighting up the night sky between Martinique north to Anguilla and west to Puerto Rico.
The American Meteorite Society (AMS) received seven reports of this event, mainly from witnesses in Grand Terre, St. John and St. Thomas.
A bright flash of light was observed from Martinique, Guadeloupe, Saint Martin, Saint Barthélemy, Gustavia and Puerto Rico.
The witnesses presenting the AMC reports were mainly located in Grande Terre, St. John and St. Thomas.
Meanwhile, one observer in Antigua and Barbuda claimed that other people also witnessed the phenomenon in St. Kitts and Florida. "No tail or fragmentation is visible - just a super-bright flash that lit up the entire sky in all directions," he added.
Observers described the color of the fireball in different ways, some said it looked purple and light blue, orange and yellow or light green. One eyewitness stated that the object had a glowing orange trail and a green flash that illuminated the sky very brightly.
