Large falling object tonight

I was out visually observing the stars tonight and a large object, possibly a meteor or space junk fell from the sky. Altitude approximately 55 degrees in the western sky, towards Orion. Much brighter and larger than anything I have seen previously. Occurred about 10:09pm March 2nd at Geelong.

Cheers,
Bob

Meteors are generally fast n short lived, whereas space junk is generally slow and of much longer duration.
