'Meteor' lights up Ipswich
MULTIPLE reports have come in of what is thought to be a meteor that passed over the Ipswich region about 8pm last night.
The meteor was seen from Sydney to Rockhampton. Sightings have been reported in Ipswich, the Sunshine Coast, Bundaberg and Maryborough.
People have reported that the amazing sight seemed very close, and it looked like a "huge star with lots of little stars behind it".
The meteor blazed across the sky at around 7.50pm-8pm heading in a south-west direction, with reports of it breaking into four pieces before fizzling out.
But last night's action wasn't just confined to Australia. There were reports of a possible meteorite strike in Canada: Canada reports
Also yesterday NASA recorded the fly-by of a near-earth asteroid.
Meanwhile, another reader has pointed to another website that forecast a space object re-entering the earth's atmosphere. See this here: Space Object
