In many cities of the Netherlands, residents saw a flying green sphere in the sky.

For example, an eyewitness from the city of Meidrecht writes:

I saw a bright star that was falling in an arc with all kinds of sparks around it. My friend was driving a little ahead of me on the same road and saw the same thing! It didn't seem very far away, but it wasn't fireworks either.

Ik zag een “ster” die naar beneden “viel, ” met allemaal kleine licht vonkeltjes

MIJDRECHT, UT — Ik zag een felle ster wat in een boogje naar beneden viel met allerlei vonkeltjes erom heen. Een vriend van mij reed op dezelfde weg een stukje voor mij en zag precies hetzelfde! Het leek niet heel ver weg te zijn, maar het was ook geen vuurwerk..
