Anyone see it? Reports all over Facebook of a large ball of fire burning up in the sky, or something, reported all over the UK and Ireland. I didn't see anything, because I wasn't looking outside.

Heard a few theories suggesting it may have been a dead satellite, or some other space junk burning up on re-entry.

Guess we'll never know unless they find parts of it

Never seen it because I probably wasn't awake but If I had known it was for coming I would've been awake. As it was frosty that night so would've seen it.

Wow, that's pretty cool! But I have to admit I thought y'all were joking about seeing the sun for the first time in a while!
