The DFN team detected a bright fireball in the South West of Australia, and sonic booms were reported!
The fireball happened at 8:09 PM local time (AWST) on November 1st, 2020. Based on the sonic booms reported near the Perth metro area, there is a good chance meteorites might have made it to the ground!
The DFN fireball cameras around the South-West were all clouded out at the time of the event, except for the one in Katanning (pictured). However, to precisely determine the trajectory of the fireball, at least 2 pictures of the fireball are required to be able to triangulate it.
If you have a footage of the fireball, our scientists would love to hear from you.
Update 2020-11-03: Thank you to everyone who reported their sightings.
