A huge green meteor with reddish tail was sighted and reported in the sky over Basel, Zurich, Zug (Switzerland), in Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Rhineland-Palatinate, Hesse (Germany) and also in Austria and France on Monday, March 31, 2014.
This amazing meteor lit up the dark sky at around 10:30 p.m. The unusual light could be observed for several seconds (up to 15 seconds) and shone in different colors. It was really slow!
The uploader of this first Youtube video explains he thought this weird multicolor light (blue, red, yellow) was a plane. But then, because of the bright colors he realized he was witnessing a meteor (or at least something else than a plane).
According to NZZ and Blick, scientists still debate the nature of the bolide… It could either be a fireball meteor, space junk, a satellite or even an UFO. It will take a few more days to be sure of what it was. The only certain thing… It was an amazing phenomenon.
