Mystery light seen above NSW

Astronomers have been busy discovering what caused a mysterious
coloured light seen in the sky by many people across western New
South Wales just after 6:00am (AEDT).

The light was seen by people from as far as Lightning Ridge,
Gulgong, Oberon and Young.

Callers to ABC Central West and Western Plains this morning
described the light as a slow moving shooting star travelling
west to east, low on the horizon.

"Yeah, it was very low and very, very bright, just a bright
green object ... might be one of those Martians," one caller

"It started to break up, red pieces started to come out the back
of it, then it disappeared," said another.

"I was right beside the shearing shed and it was so bright it
was like the truck was coming with full beam on," said a third

John Smith from the CSIRO Radio Telescope at Parkes says the
light was most likely a meteor burning lower in the atmosphere
than normal.
