    Just wondering if any one on the list could help with the below email
    I received via my astronomy popularisation website
    The object was seen on Tuesday (24 May) morning at around 6.45am AEST
    (+10 hours UT).

    Hi Paul
    I live in Toowoomba Queensland and this morning at about 6.45am we saw
    something travelling in a south easterly direction.  This looked sort
    of like a comet and had a definite flame from the tail.  Definitely
    travelling too fast for a plane of any type and left no vapour trail
    as a plane would on a cold clear morning like we had.
    Your thoughts??
