Bedfordshire, UK Meteor 9.40pm 26JUN2011

I'm in Bedfordshire, UK and last night at around 9.40pm my son and I saw an bright orange, spherical object travelling across the sky in a North Westerly direction. It was as clear as a bell and was, most certainly not a plane. The sky was incredibly clear last night and we could see planes all around. It was visible for some time as it travelled the length of the sky (incredibly fast) and it's trajectory was certainly a downward direction. I have never seen anything like it before and am familiar with shooting stars, meteor showers and the like.

Thank you Louise
