Huge fireball that lit up the sky, and lit up the surroundings. It looked like a shooting star. But it was so bright and in our atmosphere.

The years and dates above could be out by a year or so either way. All i can really remember is that i was still in high school at the time. I used to stay up late at night to have a ciggarette when my parents would go to bed. I live at the top of a three storey house that faces North, in a hilly area in Melbourne. On this particular night, i was lucky to see whatever it was. ( I have seen alot of shooting stars in my time, and it was either the most spectacular shooting star or something else). The reason i was so lucky is that, as i was pulling open my curtains I saw the event happen. It appeard like someone had shot a flaming arrow from a few feet above the roof above my head, which made the lower part of the roof in front of me ligt up, and it lit up the whole sky as it rocketed across the sky and over the nearest hill. All of this happend in about a second or two. There is no way that it was an aeroplane beacause of the speed of the thing. That is why i thought it must have been a shooting star. I dont know if stars can shoot through our atmosphere or not. But this thing sure did. I checked the newspaper and watched the news the following day but nothing was said. So i pretty much thought nothing of it ever again until today when i stumbled across this site. That is pretty much all i can tell you. But if you want to ask any questions, just E-mail me at OR Preferably the hotmail.
