SEVERAL videos on the Internet interest us, but a recent video of a fireball-shaped meteorite in the Australian sky has left netizens in awe of its beauty. Residents of Australia were left in awe on Saturday after witnessing a fireball-like object streak across the sky overnight.

According to various reports, this incident took place at the Cairns airport in Queensland at 09:22 pm in Australia. The fireball-like object was observed spanning several suburbs from Barcaldine in the far west of the state to Cooktown in the far north, News.com.au reported.

Watch the video here:

Residents living in the small town of Croydon, some 500 km west of Cairns, said they felt like an explosion and heard a loud bang, The Guardian reported. An Australian National University astrophysicist named Dr Brad Tucker told Guardian that the rock was likely between 0.5 and 1 meter in size, making it a smaller to average sized meteorite, and was likely traveling up to 150,000 km / h.

The video got around 201.3K views and up to 1.5K comments on the social networking site Facebook. One user commented: “Imagine if this landed a couple of hundred kilometers closer to the sea, that would have been a problem. How come the first thing we all knew was when we saw him hit the ground?

Meanwhile, another user wrote: “Based on what people have found after comparable fireballs, it certainly would have landed. But not impacted, in the sense that it would not have hit the ground at cosmic speed (>12 km/s), but rather more than 300 km/hour.”

For the inexperienced, meteorites are a fragment of space matter that falls to the surface of a planet, according to the National Geographic Society. Meteors are chunks of rock or metal that orbit the sun. Meteors become meteorites when they strike Earth’s atmosphere and the gases around them light up briefly as “shooting stars.” While most meteors burn up and disintegrate in the atmosphere, many of these space rocks reach Earth’s surface as meteorites.
