Time: Local time AEST
Approach Direction: Over wetlands/Barwon River/Breakwater area
Departure Direction: Fell to earth - location unknown
Witness Direction: East
Description: What appeared to be a small orange glow was seen moving slowly to the west.
After observing for approx 2 mins a small part of the item fell to earth - appeared to be burning as sparks and flame were witnessed.
This allowed me to more accurately judge the position and height - appeared to be approx 500metres in the air and was small - only the glow was seen - no object.
Shortly later the main glow also dropped to earth in the vicinity of Mitchell St/Settlement Rd.
Possibly burning debris from a fire?
Check with Fire Communications revealed no working fires in the vicinity at the time.
Color/Shape: Orange glow believed to be flame.
