Flaming ball falls from sky in Australia and crashes 'like a bomb'

Flaming ObjectResidents from across central and northern Queensland have reported seeing a huge flaming object fall from the sky. 

They say what appeared to be a massive ball with a blue and orange tail hit the ground in the suburb of Kelso in Townsville around 6:30pm (AEST) last night. 

Resident Kim Vega was sitting in her backyard at Kelso when she saw the moment of impact. 

"It was like an explosion but without a sound," she said. 

"You've just seen it was like an atomic bomb effect when it would have hit the ground and all the trees and the skies lit up."
