Just after 9pm tonight we had reports of a fireball shooting across the night sky.
The fireball, possibly a meteor or space junk burning up, was zooming across the sky from South to North. It was described as being green in colour with a yellow or red tail.
Its likely it is space junk, however there is an outside chance it is the start of an alien invasion.
Update: We have had @wrexham twitter followers tweeting us as below, and one email in saying it ‘broke up at the end’ rather than being a meteor shower. One Wrexham.com heard a rumble and boom around the same time.

In September a massive fireball, thought to be space junk, was sighted burning up over the skies of the UK – our report is here.
