Lillian Rock, New South Wales, Australia Large Fireball ~5:00 am
Hello Lunar Meteorite Hunter, This morning at approx 5am (I cannot give the exact moment) I saw a large ball of fire. I was looking into the southern sky, the fire ball was at approx 30 degrees travelling from the west to the east. I am at Lillian Rock Northern New South Wales Australia.
It as a large ball of fire. It as the colour of fire, the sphere had a fiery outline, I could not see any tail, smoke, debris or anything else. It was travelling slow enough for me to realise I was seeing something and to take a conscious look at it. It was in my vision for approx 2-3 secs.
Thank you. -Marie Cameron Thank you Marie!
Brisbane, Queensland Australia Meteor? 4:50am 30SEP2011
Hi, I am in Queensland Australia. Was heading down to Brisbane airport from Sunshine Coast (North) and about 4.50am this morning about 50kms out of Brisbane viewed what looked like a fireball or a very large shooting star falling out of the sky, we saw it for about 2mins and then it disappeared into the vicinity of Moreton Bay. It was white/yellow and very bright in appearance.
It is now 7.30am and I have not heard anything in the media about it. -Michelle
Thank you Michelle!
I was driving to work on the 30th of sept 2011 in Burleigh, gold coast Queensland, at aprox 5am and as I was sitting at the traffic lights I saw the meteor heading south. It was quite bright but had a visible flame to it, and lasted for a few seconds. Just before it burnt out it had a little split second bit of a sparky tail shoot out, but not much. Was a little confused at first because it was my 1st sighting of one and have been constantly searching the net for other sightings! Thanks Ben. Thank you Ben!
