At 9:05pm this evening I saw a (what I assume) was a meteor travelling very quickly west to east in the southern sky. It had a very green colour to it. It disappeared behind cloud over the Tararua Range. I’m at Waikanae Beach.

Te Puke. Just after 4am this morning I looked out the kitchen window. I saw what I first thought was the “morning star” except it was moving. It headed east and disappeared behind the roof of the house next door.

24th May 22, at 2.50pm a white trail appeared in sky above Mokinhinui travelling northeast. Unlike a plane’s vapor trail. Only short then trail started to disappear, only visible for 45secs to 1 min then vanished completely like nothing was ever there.

Last night approximately 10:44pm, I was at the intersection of Manchester Street and Hereford Street Christchurch, and saw what I thought at the time was a small comet, it had a bright white tail and a blue head, within seconds it disappeared into thin air.
