Great stuff you were indeed in the right place at the right time, as most of us missed out.I bet it was a view you will remember for a long time.

It was probably the Soyuz rocket re-entry you saw. Looked very spectacular.

People in Victoria reported a bright meteor/spacejunk object in today's ABC news. Experts say it was spacejunk because it was travelling a lot slower than a meteor would.

I saw it from central Victoria, brilliant show.

Was slow moving and broke up as it entered the atmosphere. I could clearly see two larger sections seperate with one falling behind the other and many smaller pieces between. Amazing show!

Is there a way I can post video on here?

I have footage although it is pretty poor quality (via iPhone in the dark....at a large distance)

Jon,
there is some reasonable footage shot from Bendigo and published on the ABC Central Victoria FB page.
Greg.

You would have to upload the video onto YouTube and provide a link to it here.
