Glowing green fireball recorded over Novosibirsk, Siberia


A bright green fireball was recorded over the Russian city of Novosibirsk, Siberia around 01:00 UTC (08:00 LT) on November 27, 2018. The event lasted up to 3 seconds before the object disintegrated.

Novosibirsk Planetarium asked those who witnessed and filmed the event to send them their reports and visuals, adding it was most likely an extremely bright meteor.

“The phenomenon is actually amazing, because there are no active meteor showers now,” Ilya Orlov, deputy director of Novosibirsk Planetarium said early November 27.

This is a very interesting phenomenon and worthy of study, he said. “We need to study whether it is a part of Leonid meteor shower or just a single meteor.”

“Bright flash recorded by residents most likely means the meteoroid body exploded in the atmosphere,” Orlov said in an update posted 06:20 UTC, November 28.

“The probability of meteorites in this case is extremely low.”
