What was the object in the sky?

Some lucky stargazers in the Isle of Man got to see an stunning, unidentified object streak across the sky on Friday night.

It's believed to have been either a meteor or an old satellite, burning up as it entered the Earth's atmosphere.

One group which regularly watches the skies, the Isle of Man Astronomical Society, was at the observatory in Foxdale.

However, most of them missed out on seeing the object, as the society's membership secretary, David Storey, told Manx Radio.
