Flood of UFO calls after Another Meteor Sighting

Phones rang overnight with reports of a UFO sighting in Melbourne. People from Lilydale to Mt Eliza and Richmond to St Albans called about 9:45pm to say they had seen an amazing bright blue light in the sky with a long blue trail. It was, in fact, a meteor or Bolide burning up in the atmosphere. The meteor entered the atmosphere over north-east Victoria and travelled towards South Australia. "As the Earth moves around the sun in its orbit it sweeps up this sort of material every day. However, not much is larger than a grain of sand. This one however was bigger, probably the size of a tennis ball." The meteor was moving up to 72km a second.
