Shape: Fireball | Duration: 3-4 secs

As usual I was standing in my balcony on 4th floor from where I see huge area of sky till Indian ocean and suddenly my eyes caught attention on an unusual flying object in the sky, which was so bright and was flying rapidly at an usual speed compared to normal planes which leaves long trails behind. The lights were not blinking like normal airplanes, so I shouted to my whole family to witness the same, for few seconds no one understood what it is, and I shouted my wife to get my Sony handy cam, DCRSR62 which is very powerful with 2000x zoom. I managed to record about 3-4 seconds of that rapid flying bright object on video and then it just disappeared behind the clouds.On 10th Jan 09, I checked on the UFO sighting website, and to my surprise I found that the similar object was caught on video in Scotland too on the very same day.I am not a UFO geek and what I saw was a mystery and I don’t go our looking for flying saucers or aliens, but for now, I will live with it and feel good about something I caught on my camera in my life in Tanzania.((NUFORC Note: Source of report has sent several still photos, taken from the video. They are very blurry, and show a "squiggly" smear of light against a dark, night sky. PD))
