Fireball over Hobart

Video ignites debate

Fireball over Hobart
This morning our switchboard was flooded with calls from listeners saying they’d see an unidentified object in the sky above Hobart with a tail.

Speculation was around a possible meteor, some saying a plane with vapors caught by the sunlight, an Emirates flight was over Tassie at around the time headed to New Zealand, but then this video (below) emerged from Lee-Anne Peters which has now just added fuel to the fire.

The video, captured over Sorell, Tasmania just after 6.30am Tuesday 28th Feb 2017, appears to show a fireball with a smoky tail.
