Reports Report 2483a (Event 2483-2020)

This report has been linked to the following event: Event 2483-2020
Observer
NameGeoff W
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThis was spectacular and I thought at the time that it was a meteor. However, it was extremely slow moving. After reading other reports I believe it is thought to be space junk re-entering the atmosphere and was seen in other parts of Australia and northern Tasmania. I believe that I witnessed the very end of it so would indicate the most southerly part.
