Our newsroom has just received a bulletin from the Spanish Canary Islands.
The eyewitness is an Italian national and has sent in the following report:
My name is O.U. and I live and work on Lanzarote.
Only a few minutes ago, when the local time was 6:20 p.m., my secretary stepped out of the office and saw a strange sphere with a luminous orange surface and called me outside to see it.
The event lasted about one minute.
Another object in the sky, with a long orange tail, followed an even higher trajectory. An airliner in flames? I donít think so and nothing was said on TV.
A meteorite. It could be, but the trajectory of the object flying above the first one does not lend credit to this theory.
