A fireball event was reported to us on 1st October 2016. This meteor occured at Ain melila, Algeria at 10:23 pm 2123 UTC. It was described as "crashing and detonating".

From the pictures we have seen plus the cctv and video video clips, it looks like this was a very bright fireball event and similar to the event seen previously off the coast of Queensland.

A large meteor event, probably a superbolide air-burst event, has been reported over the sea near Gladstone, Queensland at 10:27 UTC, (8.27pm local time) 26th September. This is probably the largest meteor event since 2013, the details of which are currently being investigated by Meteorscan.

There are also unverified reports of another, smaller event at Buderim at approximately 2am (16:00 UTC).
