Fireball Streams Past Australian Research Vessel - Close Call

A meteorite has burnt up as it streaked across the sky right in front of a science vessel for the Australian CSIRO. Talk about being in the right place at the right time.

The onboard team were cruising around 120 km South of Hobart, Tasmania at the time, 21:21 AEDT on Wednesday, 18th November 2020.

Caught via the on-board camera, it makes quite a sight as it burns its way across the southern sky, narrowly missing the research vessel and ending up in the ocean.
