My wife saw large round star like with a triangular tail coming out the back. I saw it travel like a large comet with single tail n disappeared to the south west of Dunedin. My wife saw it for a period of about 20 – 30 seconds. I saw it for about 10 seconds.

Last night at about 8pm in Hokitika I saw a dark plume over the sea just appear in the sky travelling very quickly. I watched it through my binoculars and it did not appear to be a jet: it was travelling too quickly! It also appeared to be heading downwards. Did anyone else see it and any ideas as to what it was?

hi, I saw a line of about 50 which looked like shooting stars or stars moving down toward earth.i was with my family and it was about 8:30 or something and we were at nelson Bay Australia 20.3.20. If you could get back to me of what it was I would be very happy as I am very intrigued by what it could have been.

giant trail of meteors headed west to east 8.30pm from westland. stunning. around 50 or so of them in a row, moving steady / slow. taking up a good 30 degrees of skyline. out of this world. almost like a long worm moving across the sky

Christchurch, New Zealand. Three of us were having a bbq at around 8.20 we saw a long line of lights traveling very fast across the sky. Very odd!
