D lives in a 3rd floor apartment near the city. His apartment window displays a wonderful view towards the city skyline, looking south. This particular evening D and his wife were watching television (approximately 4 meters from the window) when suddenly he noticed a very bright and large ball of light shoot across the sky. D described the anomaly as a white, bluish ball of light traveling at considerable speeds. It was approximately 10 degrees above the Sydney skyline, traveling from the east to west towards the Harbor Bridge on a horizontal path. He said, "It was too low, too bright and too fast to be a plane or a helicopter. It moved so fast that it seemed to leave a trail. And it was large, like the size of a 50 cent coin at arms length." Apparently the skylights in the apartment were open. Therefore he would have heard any noise associated with the unknown. But there was none at all. Also there was no other air traffic in the area during the sighting. D then added, "Around ten minutes later a helicopter went by. But nothing before hand for around ten minutes."
D lives in an area where he sees substantial amounts of air traffic. But nothing like this! I asked him if there were any electrical disturbance in the apartment during the sighting. None were noted.
D met up with some colleagues the following day and told them about his experience. One of his colleagues broke out laughing with excitement and informed his that he too saw exactly the same thing at the same time. They couldn't believe the coincidence.
The other witness lives on the other side of the harbor, so the anomaly from his perspective was to the north.
So was it a meteorite with a certain elementary composition that gave this bluish tinge, or was it something else? A fireball of this apparent size would have caused serious havoc. I think the next step is to get hold of some major Sydney papers for some possible information.
