1907: Strange aerial apparition

Source: Netherlands, Alphen, Oudshoorn, Aarlanderveen en omstreken, De Rijnbode, 6 October 1907.
At Nijkerk on the Veluwe Thursday evening a strange aerial apparition was seen, probably a fireball (meteorite) that moved in a western direction.

The apparent diameter was estimated at about half of that of the moon. Five or six smaller ones followed the big one and like this one also radiated a green light.
