Contrary to SA News reports-
The object was NOT the size of a marble. This object was in the order of 10s-100s kg, maybe up to half the size of a VW bug or a full bug, to be seen in daytime and produce sonics.  Hopefully they will find a competent scientist to comment.  Since there was no fragmentation reported I suspect that it may be an iron meteoroid that entered the atmosphere.  I also suspect given the reports that we have a new meteorite to be found on the ground.  
My Cell recordered the area as Mitchells Plain, but I was travelling from Ottery towards Athlone and spotted the meteor at corner of Ottery Road and Lansdowne Roads. It was amazing but a bit too late for a video it came down too fast and just suddenly there was a big ball of white smoke.

I was driving from Montagu, SA to Ashton, SA and just 1km before Ashton, SA I saw this bright light on my right hand side. My eyes caught it immediately. It was this big fire ball coming down to earth with a lot of smoke at the end. I did told a people but they think I talk nonsense but on the other hand it was really really beautiful to see such a thing for 5 seconds. Thank you Jean Visser
