Incredible green meteor pictured off coast of Yorkshire
Looks pretty creepy, but is pretty logical (Picture: Ross Parry)

It might look like something from Close Encounters of the Third Kind – but there’s an entirely logical reason for this eerie green light hovering in the sky above a home.

It’s actually a meteorite – and was captured on camera by Peter Horbury as it flashed through the clear night sky near Whitby, North Yorkshire.

Peter, 57, captured the snap at 1.30 am on Saturday after he headed to Hornblower Lodge in Whitby, North Yorkshire.
