A "blinding" flash, intense explosion and sonic booms experienced over much of the country last night were probably caused by a meteor, experts agree.
About 10pm, the flash, described by many as a burst of blue and white light, was seen from Whangarei to the upper South Island.
Meteorite expert and former publisher of Meteorite Magazine Joel Schiff said he did not see last night's event in person, but based on footage he had seen online it was "almost certainly some extra terrestrial material".
Fingers crossed it's ET . Sorry for not posting this earlier, had the link saved, and completely forgot about it.
