I was looking out the window about 40 minutes ago and took a double take - the moon was on fire! Well I thought that until I realised it was moving. It was huge, about the size of a football, and was in the sky over a minute. I've seen meteorites before and they last a few seconds, but this was around well over a minute. Unlike others I've seen it was moving so slowly, at one point I thought it may be a burning plane, but it got smaller and smaller and vanished. I saw it from Oakham, Rutland, and it was 'flying' in a southerly direction. I really hope it wasn't a plane (and doubt that it was), but I guess I've just witnessed one of those once in a lifetime events.
