A massive mysterious explosion in Wairoa this morning shook windows and woke people in Mahia, Kotemaori, Ruakituri, Lake Waikaremoana and Wairoa.
Wairoa senior sergeant Chris Flood said the explosion occurred about 3.40am.
Carter Observatory astronomer Kay Leather said the explosion may well have been the sonic boom of a meteor entering the atmosphere.
"There have been several recent reports of fireballs in the northern hemisphere, in Portugal and in Washington. There have also been several
recordings of these occurring during the day, which is our night," Ms Leather said.
I wonder what all the Blokes in Aussie land were thinking!!!
