An eyewitness from the city of Hertogenbosch (North Brabant region) noticed an unknown object entering the atmosphere:

From the zenith he headed east. At first it seemed like a meteorite. The object was clearly outside the atmosphere. 

It was striking that the object in the form of a meteor streak abruptly slowed down and continued to move in an easterly direction in the form of a white (like a satellite) disk. 

A noticeable deviation is that at the same time and at (estimated) a relatively short distance, a bright satellite passed, and the second (without stellar communication) very close behind it. 

Especially considering that as a lover of astronomy, I have never seen such a thing for almost 40 years. To me it was most like a ship entering the atmosphere... I do not know what it is/was, but I just wanted to point it out. I hope more people saw it.

Original news

Binnenkomst dampkring door onbekend object

'S-HERTOGENBOSCH, NB — Vanuit het Zenith kwam in oostelijke richting naar wat in eerste instantie een meteoriet leek aangevlogen. Het object zat duidelijk buiten de dampkring. Het opvallende was dat het object van een meteorietstreep abrupt afremde en als een witte ( satelliet look) schrijf ophebt verderging in Oostelijk richting. Saillant desertie is dat op dat dezelfde moment en op ( geschat) relatief korte afstand een heldere satelliet passeerde met heel kort daarachter een tweede ( geen starlink). Bijzonder aangezien als amateurnastroom
In bijna 40 jaar dit nog nooit heb gezien. Het leek mij nog het meest op een schip wat de dampkring binnenkwam…. Ik weet niet wat dit is/was maar wil het toch even melden. Hopelijk hebben meer mensen dit gezien


List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence


A meteor, a "shooting star" is a phenomenon that occurs when small meteor bodies (for example, fragments of comets or asteroids) burn up in the Earth's atmosphere. A similar phenomenon of greater intensity (brighter than the stellar magnitude -4) it is called a fireball.

Booster, the rocket and tracks

For UFOs often take stages of rockets, parts of space ships burning in the atmosphere, the launches of various missile technology for military purposes, etc., and traces from them. They attract attention mostly in the dark, but in the day time have a greater aura of mystery.

Formation of the track of the launch vehicle occurs in the tropopause (the layer between the troposphere and stratosphere), which sharply reduced the vertical temperature gradient. The emergence of the so-called "jellyfish" influenced by water vapor, which are subject to enhanced condensation.
