It's not every day that you look into the sky and see that.
The people of Perth were overwhelmed when they saw a bright light over the sky on August 28th.
The Perth Observatory said they had several reports of a large meteor flying through the sky. Many people claimed that it looked like a "fireball".
A manager from Perth's Gravity Discovery Center said the light had all the tell-tale signs of a decent meteor. A meteor is a light trail, also called a shooting star, that arises when a space rock penetrates into the earth's atmosphere and evaporates.
The meteor made a search for Australian scientists for the remnants of the celestial object that caused it.
Although meteor sightings are not uncommon, people in the surrounding suburbs reported hearing a loud boom shaking their homes and windows, according to ABC.
The residents have dealt with their concerns in the social media, many thought that there could be a possible earthquake or a plane crash.
I just saw a huge fireball in the sky, it was the wildest thing ever! I think it was a meteor! He lit up the whole sky!

Scientists at Curtin University are now investigating where the meteor has probably fallen to the ground.
The video was taken by Péth Hills resident BeJay Walker on his CCTV SkyCam.
