Another Meteor Seen In The Skies Of Australia

Australia
Meteor Alert
Tension gripped Western Victoria residents after witnessing bright light in the heavens for two straight nights, believed to be a meteor. Residents of Ballarat, west of Melbourne, said that they saw a bright orange-colored light in the sky about 10 p.m Tuesday. The object reportedly flew around the air for more than one minute. Last Monday, calls from the residents of South Australia and Western Victoria were received by authorities and media offices reporting a bright green colored object shooting like a fireball westward in the sky around 8pm. The Bureau of Meteorology confirmed the object seen on Monday night was a meteor.

Bright Lights Over Bendigo:
Some residents of Central Victoria believed they saw the meteor crashing to the ground on Monday the 15th. Callers to ABC Radio say they saw a brightly coloured object moving quickly through the northern skies. "I guess it just looked like a meteor. It was bright green, or flashing green, and really bright and sparkling and kind of blazed across the sky." "Very visible, very bright. A big white, greenish sort of a head and long tail in the middle with orange sparks flying off each side."
