Did anyone see the Meteoroid over Canberra last night (27th May) at about 11.30pm??
I was watching from Gungahlin towards Civic last night and it came in extremely fast and was clearly in the atmosphere, and burnt out with a very bright magnesium flash at the end. It literally only happened over a second. It was enough to startle me. From where I was looking it was only about 30-40 degrees above the horizon.
This was not like the normal streak across the sky (seen hundreds of them) that basically are touching the atmostphere, this was almost straight down with a small arc and if I was to take a guess it was literally only a few kilometres high above Civic….but recognise that distances are hard to gauge.
Anyone else see it or heard anything about it???
