A bright green light “travelling faster than any plane” was seen in the sky above Norfolk at 11pm on Sunday night.

A reader from Upper Stoke, near Poringland, “saw a really bright green light - which seemed to be torpedo-shaped, travelling across the sky towards Norwich, at great speed but absolutely silently.

“I could see it travelling through and above the clouds as I could see cloud beneath the light. It vanished completely after about three seconds.”

“It was travelling faster than any plane I have seen and was so bright I initially thought firework but it was a) too high; b) there were no other fireworks and c) it made no noise or explosion.

“Guessing this was a meteor of some kind but wondered if anyone else has reported anything and it would help preserve my sanity if they did.”
