Meteor Sighting??

I was sitting on my deck in Auckland New Zealand at about 10pm Saturday 2nd December when I looked up to see a bright ball with a less bright fan tail glide across the sky, it was the shape of an arrowhead. It was really low (to low to be a satelite and to fast and big) It took about a second and a half and disappeared before it could be obscured by my roof.

Meteor?

My son and I just saw a huge bright meteor or something like that - at least ten times bigger than a shooting star - fall for more than a second in the sky to behind the Stellenbosch mountain in Stellenbosch, South Africa.

A bold blue streak of light, streaked diagonally across the sky, positionally 10 oclock across and down to 5:00. It was brighter at the bottom. This was eye level in the sky. Far brighter than any shooting star ive ever seen.

Iowa

I saw something I would say four times as big as I've ever seen a shooting star/meteor in my 36 years. It looked huge from Iowa driving West at around 11ish. It was North West of interstate 80. It fell from a slight angle from South to North St a rapid pace. It slowly degreased in size as it fell and seemed like it would impact Earth. I was greatly concerned and continued to watch for aftermath of impact. Saw nothing.

Dame response

I also thought there may be impact the super moon must be dragging stuff down
