A “fireball” object was seen in the skies over Hobart yesterday morning.
David Finlay, from Australian Meteor Reports, told the Courier Mail that he had not received any reports of meteor activity over Tasmania.
“It is not uncommon for people to mistake jet contrails for meteors, especially in the afternoon and in the western sky as the sun sets. I’ve watched some people looking at contrails who even thought they were seeing a comet,” Mr Finlay said.
It's suggested that it was in fact a plane with vapors caught by the sunlight -an Emirates flight was over Tassie at around the time headed to New Zealand
