    Yesterday on Christmas Eve there was a huge meteor like fireball over Germany around 17:30 local time. Eye-witnesses reported that it left a huge tail and finally split in several parts. While peoples speculation includes a meteor, God, Santa and aliens, latest reports say that it most likely was the re-entry of the Soyuz booster that brought Expedition 30 up to the International Space Station a few days prior to Christmas Eve. Below are a few videos.

    It's more likely to be Angela Merkal travelling at the speed of light, to force through more insufficient plans to save the Euro.

    He must have been on a few planets lately, Santa needs to be more careful with the alien technology they gave him.

    I know what it is, a Dutchman did travel to space two days(Dunno maybe Yesterday) to a space station, rumors are it is a part of his capsule.

    Away from civilization.
    I told Santa the aliens didn't like him flying through their territory.

    So much for friendly skies :(
