If the rocket dumped its first stage just prior to orbit then that could explain this "spiral" we're seeing.
(However, it's only a theory). Occam's Razor - eliminate the most sensible explanations first.

I see NO connection between the newly launched rocket AND THIS!!
Nothing was falling to earth....it was travelling horizontally....

Just to give the non-australians an idea of distance, if this object was seen in Canberra as reported and then later in Brisbane, we are talking about it covering a distance of roughly 620miles.
As also reported it was seen in South Australia it would be closer to covering a distance of 1500miles and taking a 90' left turn at canberra to head towards Brisbane.
That is some serious speed for an object seen in such a short period of time, unless there was more than 1.

"Rolls" are usually planned in modern rocket launches — anything that happens "unexpectedly" in one of these multi-billion-dollar launches is considered a major event. I haven't heard any talk of an "unexpected roll," so my guess is that it was part of the planned ascent.

On the video, it is evident the rocket experienced a slight roll, which was not expected.

just think of a giant micro wave oven in the sky blasting its energy back to Earth... but the question is why was it turned on over Sydney this morning ?
