Meteor turns into late-night fireball over Australia
PERTH, Australia -- Australian scientists are searching for the remnants of a meteor which burned spectacularly across the sky in Perth on Tuesday night. The unusual phenomenon was caught on camera by multiple spectators, and described as a "fireball" on social media. Curtin University professor Phil Bland said it was "almost certainly" a chunk of asteroid coming through the atmosphere, an event which he said occurs only a couple of times a year.
