Mr Russell Su was completing his night run in Queenstown on May 24 when he saw a bright blue streak of light dart through the sky.

Over in Sembawang, Ms Charlotte Lee, 23, was fishing with her friends when the meteor, which she described as a green flare with an orange tail, streaked across the sky for about five seconds.

“I didn’t manage to catch the meteor showers in late April, so seeing one without expecting it was really cool,” said Ms Lee, referring to the Lyrids meteor shower that was expected to peak in Singapore at night on April 22.Astronomical Society of Singapore president Soh Kim Mun said the meteor was bright enough to be called a fireball, the astronomical term for a meteor that is exceptionally bright and spectacular enough to be seen over a wide area, according to Nasa.
