'Fireball' Shoots Across SA Sky!

Fireball Over South Australia
ABC News Online

     There have been reports of at least one large fireball in the sky over south-eastern South Australia.

The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) says the fireball was most likely a meteor.

It shot across the sky soon after 8:00pm ACDT and was followed by what sounded like a large explosion.

BOM and police say they have received dozens of phone calls from residents in Adelaide and as far away as the Victorian border.

One Riverland resident, Dennis Schiller, was travelling in his car when he saw it.

"We were looking to the south and this massive fireball came out of the sky and it seemed to increase as it come down," he said.

"We were absolutely amazed with what we saw ... and we were there discussing it and it would have been a good two minutes later that we heard a massive explosion."
