A huge fireball has been spotted streaking across the skies of North Western Australia inspiring awe and some fear. One witness stated “It was scary, because it came from the airport direction, and then we realised that it was probably space junk or a meteor,”

talkback caller Monica from Broome told ABC Radio. “We spend a lot of nights with the kids lying out on trampolines watching shooting stars, but I’ve never seen anything like that.”The fireball was spotted across a wide area of northwestern Australia just before 7 pm on Tuesday.
