Hi Andrei,

Please consult the website of the Dutch Meteor Society
"http://www.dmsweb.org" for details regarding this
extraordinary fireball which appeared over the
Northsea about halfway the Netherlands and Britain.



>During entire Sunday police of Belgian city Gent got
calls from the citizens, who saw the past night in the
sky the very bright " luminous spheres ", which were
moving with the enormous speed. The management of the
police decided to turn for the explanations into the
weather service of the nearest base weather station,
where they said to them that it was the meteoritic
rain. In order to exclude hearing about the invasion
UFO, the police preferred itself to inform the local
mass-madia about the night incident.
