Submitted by MistrX
MistrX (1566617) writes "A lot of people in the Netherlands saw a fireball at around seven pm on Tuesday evening. Astronomer Theo Jurriens from Groningen University confirmed that it was an extremely bright meteor which broke into three pieces after hitting the atmosphere.
He says he received about 100 reports of sightings of the meteor from people throughout the country. The KNMI national weather centre also received a large number of calls reporting the event.
It was also witnessed in Germany and Belgium
