A dazzling fireball has flashed across the night sky in Western Australia. The meteor was a "bloody ripper" according to Perth Observatory and was seen at 8.50pm AWST on November 22 in the state's south west. "Our Facebook page, info email address and phones have been inundated with people who saw this beautiful meteor tonight," the observatory posted on social media. "The Earth may have gotten a few kilograms heavier with a meteorite somewhere in the south west of WA." Those lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the spectacle shared what they saw on social media. "I saw it by chance over Eaton going south. Sparkling beauty, biggest one I have ever seen," one person said. "Saw it in Halls Head. The whole sky turned a blue green for a second or two. It felt like it was right on top of us," another said. One woman said the colours were a "fabulous green" before it burst "into a bright white ball".
