Meteorite? Or something else? (Australia)

Friend of mine that is working in the far north of Western Australia shared this video on Facebook just now. Looks like a meteorite and I'm pretty sure that's all it is (not so sure on the colouring of the object though - are meteorites normally green?).

Thought I would share it anyway to see what everyone else thinks!

Works for me. Green, fireball, just something coming in: meteor, or perhaps some space junk. Same color as one I saw years ago.

We saw a green one last fall. It was beautiful.

It’s too slow and low to be a meteor; it’s lighting up the clouds both above and below it.

Well, although the color of burning meteors is determined by their chemical makeup, there have been some weird ones... look up Sandia and Los Alamos in 1949 ... or here is a Wikipedia article:

Wikipedia Green Fireballs

and that object had a steady, even looking trajectory ... not obviously heading to ground or back into space. Makes me think of the "Green Lady" secret project spoken of in the aircraft forum.

Way too slow for a meteorite. They I got some strange stuff up there or maybe it was space junk I've seen some crazy stuff up there just about all of it with my pvs-14 with the Pinnacle tube turn it up to about 85% game

Why does the shoot through the clouds and shoot into a monster’s mouth . Lol




Why is the meteor below the clouds ? The friction from thickness of the atmosphere at that elevation would’ve already caused the meteor to explode .



What are all of the different colored objects visible.



Another object nearby the object .



Lotta questions not many answers yet.

I’m sitting on the fence from what we’ve seen .

Not lower than the clouds! Really...

Probably 60-70 km up.
Rather slow, so looks like it may be space junk.

If it is extraterrestrial, it is a meteor, not a meteorite, unless rocks fall on the ground (or in the water, most likely)

Looks like space junk from orbit. It is too slow for a meteor. There is no way it can possibly be a meteorite as it is not on the ground.

Not quite a Bolide (unless there was an explosion after the video ended)
So Fire ball for sure.

The American meteor society already has it listed:

AMS

One thing it has going for it being a meteor is the green and no explosion. Usually means lots of iron/nickel.
Big Irons can certainly come in slow depending upon how they intersect our orbit and because of their mass, many do not detonate.

Since it lost all of it's cosmic velocity before reaching the horizon, this thing could have dropped a huge rock.
The same way many big irons have been delivered, rather peacefully, like cape york and hoba.

If they ever hit the ground at cosmic velocity.... hell to pay.

Been sighted (Green Lady) a couple of times here in Australia over the years.

It’s pretty gnarly how long it burns for. That thing is sightseeing for sure whatever it is.

Im not going into details but it doesn't look like the greenlady. Sorry guys. I'm going with something meteorological in nature.

I don't know how you could tell clouds are both above and below it. During that time that it was lighting up the cloud "above" it (above it in the image frame, but not necessarily HIGHER than the object) and "below" it in, it could have just been a break in the clouds that it could be seen through. If there was a cloud rather than a break there, I think the object would have been behind that cloud and the glow would have appeared as a round disk halo on the clouds.

Also, It's not too slow to be a fireball/bolide meteor. They are larger and can survive much farther into the atmosphere. The atmosphere slows them down considerably first to only a couple 1000 mph to even just under 1000 mph. Eventually they will slow down even more to about 200 mph (terminal velocity) if they survive that long, but by that time they would also stop burning up due to the reduced amount of friction from falling so slowly (relatively slowly compared to its original cosmic velocity).

Here are several videos of the Peekskill Meteorite from 1992 (so named because a piece of it survived all the way to the ground where it hit a parked car in Peekskill, NY). It was one of the most filmed fireballs/bolides because it happened on a Friday night during High School football season while many cameras were filming the football games. Also because it was visible over several states -- Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Maryland.

It's not necessarily lower in altitude than that cloud it is lighting up that is "above" it ("above" it in the image, but not necessarily at a higher altitude than the object).

Think of it this way: if the clouds did not have any breaks in them, it is likely this object would have always appeared behind those clouds, rather than becoming more visible every so often through an opening in the clouds.

In that case, the glow from the object would have appeared as a circular disk halo on the cloud. That's actually what we are seeing here (the glow as a circular disk halo) but that disk is broken up by the opening in the clouds.

What a beaut!

I'm surprised everybody here seems to be in the know about how fast meteors are supposed to go.
I would recon that angle of entry, speed, composition and mass could make all the difference.
