A mysterious fireball made a dramatic entrance into the Scottish sky, lighting up the night and making a loud rumbling noise, which left residents somewhat confused. The object is believed to have been a meteor, though that has yet to be confirmed. Police in Scotland said they received a flood of calls at around 6:55pm on Monday, after a bright flash was seen dancing across the sky, Mail Online reported.

Residents said they spotted blue, white, and green lights, with many saying they heard a rumbling sound. The fireball was filmed by several dashcams, with drivers posting the footage online.

The Met Office ruled out the possibility of a weather-related cause, stating that there were no thunder storms over Scotland on Monday night. READ MORE
