G'day mate Hows my Old P-Town going?
As a former Sandgroper myself and docent at Bickley Observatory I have to say its likely a meteorite that you saw given duration and location itself
if we say NNE 30ks out of CBD thats the hills and I lived there. OR It could very be a milspec laser indeed. (naughty kidlets playing with
I agree with grey580 on this. Myself, I have been lucky enough to SEE and HEAR Twice A Meteorite dash across our skies into our atmosphere. Once at Ob
City on a high balcony that was just Beyond awesome... ( non westaussies- Observation City is a high rise hotel on the beach.)
But have seen many and not heard them.
Given duration of sighting and no description of shape - I am assuming it zooped thru the sky in that 4 to 8 seconds so you saw a streak? Unless you
provide other details I have to say I too have seen these Green Streaks just as you ... these are Meteorites...
Perth is wonderfully small and the Skies are So Awesome for gazing and even astrophotography in Morley can be done ( just outside the City centre)
theres just so much flat and not much light pollution relatively even so - that a friends images are amazing from his backyard...in Morley!
I lived in the Hills over the hill in fact for even less light pollution..
Have a drink for me, I am now internal compassly challenged living East Coast USA lol I miss my Southern Cross and will likely get it tattooed on me
---not because Im a bogan --- haha but Astronomer whom misses the stars being the right way up lol
Have the Best Day
