Suddenly a bright light appeared in the sky.
A sudden bright light in the sky on Saturday night in Australia surprised everyone. According to media reports, at first glance, it seemed as if a ball of fire was ripping through the sky. Whoever saw this incident was shocked. Now whether it was a meteorite or a comet or something else, its information could not be found at the moment.
At the same time, this incident was captured in a CCTV camera, which is now going viral. It is clearly visible in the video that something shining with a bright light is going from the sky towards the earth at a high speed. The incident took place at 9.22 pm in Australia and was witnessed in several suburbs.
In fact, on Saturday, the residents of Northeast Australia saw something like a fireball in the sky. The incredible incident was captured on video at Cairns Airport in Queensland. In this it looks like a meteorite shining bright green before crashing.
According to media reports, the incident took place at 9.22 pm in Australia and was witnessed in several suburbs stretching from Barcaldine in the far west of the state to Cooktown in the north. According to the Guardian, residents of the small town of Croydon, about 500km west of Cairns, said on social media that they too had felt an explosion and heard noises.
Dr. Brad Tucker, an astrophysicist at the Australian National University, stated that it was likely to be between 0.5 and 1 m in size, making it smaller than an average-sized meteorite, and possibly moving at 150,000 km/h.
The video of this incident is becoming very viral on Facebook. A user commented on this that imagine if it had landed close to the sea, it would have been a problem. How is it that we all came to know about it first when we saw it falling on the ground. According to NASA, meteoroids are space rocks that enter the Earth’s atmosphere and hit the ground.
