In Porirua and saw what looked like a white fireball with a blueish tail flash across the sky from West to East around 1:30ish am. It looked unreal how big it was

Lower North Island here, Biggest ‘shooting star/ meteor’ ? I’ve ever seen. Approx. 1.20am, heading from East to West towards Oz. Extremely large, bright & travelling so fast. It was quite amazing.

Can confirm this, from churton park flying towards the south over makara, exact same time as above, seemed like it was underneath the clouds, definitely inside our atmosphere also left a smell of sulfuric gun powder type smell, Either way It was bloody gigantic, was almost going to go looking to see if It landed.

Enormous white ball of light stationary over the Waitakere Ranges tonight. Easily 40-50 times the size of the nearest star and much closer to earth.

14/10 – We were driving East towards Hunua at the top of the Bombay Hills and a bright green ball, burning up fast, passed directly in front of us from right to left, looked like it would hit growers field, was incredible!
