Then I see this news story tonight in the Australian national news-feed about a fireball zooming through my hometown sky on Monday night.
|Dozens of people took to social media on Monday night after spotting a meteor over the skies of south east Queensland.|
"A Brisbane webcam set up to monitor the weather has snapped the moment a meteor blazed over the city.
The Australian Weathercam Network's (AWN) camera at New Farm, which takes a photo every 20 seconds at night, captured the shooting star over a green-lit Story Bridge at exactly 7:50:40pm on Monday.
Dr Stephen Hughes from Queensland University of Technology's Science and Engineering Faculty said the meteor had to be burning bright for it to be photographed so clearly over a brightly-lit Brisbane CBD.
"If it was in the sky for several seconds, that's in a fireball category, like something the size of an orange coming through the atmosphere," he said."
