A bright flash or light has been reported by hundreds of people and lots of reports coming in of a tremor around Gladstone today at around 8:27pm Autralia time? Who felt it?
It looks like a giant, bright orange to green-blue meteorite blazed across the sky in Yeppoon, Rockhampton and Gladstone and has impacted somewhere offshore from the general Gladstone area.

Did anyone else see that thing falling out of the sky and then burn out at around 8:35pm Asutralian time?
A bright flash or light has been reported by hundreds of people, this light was seen as far South as Hervey Bay and as far North as Yeppoon with a tremor being felt upon impact over the general Gladstone area and Boyne Island.
Here a video of the short flash in the sky over Queensland, Australia:

According to reports the flaming object was very low. like only 30 meters off the ground.
It could’ve been space junk. But space junk normally flies longer and disintegrates slower than in a few seconds in the sky.
