This is the OP's son ill say what i saw and usually i am a secptict on things like this so it was a tad strange to me, was walking home from the
cinemas late at night when around to the north west there was what looked to be just a really largge star, but i noticed it was falling slowly, it
began to pick up speed and lit on fire, it was at a very far distance and if i had to guess i would say just a small meteroite that wasnt even worth
telling people about there was no sound. it wasnt a flare as flares dont just ignite as this did, id say it would of been veiwable from most of WA as
it was so far back, no sound and havent seen anything like it before. but i will check around to see if there were any due objets close to the earths
atmosphere that may of burnt up thanks.
