Unusual ‘Meteor’ storm hits Britain
‘People from across the UK have reported seeing bright objects in the night sky, thought to be meteors or “space junk”
Some speculate it’s a pop-up meteor shower, some that its a piece of space debris, all of which is apparently charted and monitored by NASA. One observer described it as ‘an unidentified object’, obviously cautious of using the word ‘flying’ in between those two. We wonder, what else could it be moving slowly across the heavens, and are we just being fed whatever excuse is the most probable, rather than the truth?

I see the royal astronomers have already been summoned to run with the mundane explanation (from 1:00)
Why is it so many small-minded people who seemingly have no interest in the wonders of the cosmos work as astronomers?

This must surely be classed as an alignment?
