Tracey-Jaynes Hodgkinson emailed to say: "My friend Chris and I definitely saw this..

"It was a large white glow in the sky.. That shot away way too quickly to be an aircraft, I jusy knew that it wasn't annything that I'd seen before, but coudn't quite understand how it was travelling so quickly relative to the stars.
