Reports have come in of a bright light seen moving over the sky in Wellington and Christchurch.
WeatherWatch says it has been inundated with reports of a spectacular meteor over central New Zealand this evening.
Eyewitnesses from Wellington and Christchurch are talking of a fireball that rushed across the sky leaving a large trail behind it.

This was actually a meteorite. Here in the uk a while back we had radio news warnings that a meteor was going to pass through the earths atmosphere but was not going to colide. They said that the size of it was about the size of a double decker bus. Its a shame there is no date to this clip so that it can collaborate.
Is this something like the "April Fireballs"–one of which was seen today here in San Antonio, TX?
