21NOV2012 Jeff Redlynch, Cairns, QLD, Australia approx 2300 GMT+10 approx 3-4 seconds Looking South, meteor travelled in a SW direction Very bright green, lit up the sky with green light, central yellow/orange flame much brighter than the moon fragmented as it travelled across the sky, bits streaking and broke up into 2 or 3 large pieces before disappearing At first I thought it was someone letting off a boat flare, but it couldn't be as it was far too high and over land. Amazingly vivid green light lit up the whole sky to the South, with an orange flaming centre
