Original Message On Monday evening a family of three spotted a rather unusual occurrence - an unidentified flying object zooming over their home in Darwin, Australia.

The burning object was caught on camera at 6pm by 40-year-old Quentin Theron who was hanging out with his teenage kids Kylie, 14, and Georgia, 8 at their pool.

Excited by what appears to be a ball of fire hurtling towards earth, one onlooker excitedly says "that's a giant rock coming towards the earth."

Speaking to local news station, NT News, astronomer Geoff Carr clarified the orange streak was definitely an unidentified flying object.

“It is unidentified, flying and an object, but I don’t think it is of alien origin,” he said

However, he also had a few earth-bound explanations for the blaze.

“I can only suggest a high altitude military jet with its afterburner on,” he told NT News.

“Other than that it looks too slow to be a piece of space junk re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere.

“It may be an Iridium Flare – which is a large, cube-shaped communication satellite.

“These appear to flare up sometimes extremely brightly if at the right angle to catch the sunlight.”
