A bright daylight meteor exploded over Far North Queensland, Australia around 13:40 LT on October 1, 2019. The event lasted several seconds.

Residents described it as 'very bright flash of light, followed by a sonic boom which 'shook the ground.'

Some residents said they thought it was an earthquake. "Table was vibrating and we could feel it on the ground," one of the witnesses said.

There is a possibility small pieces of the object survived atmospheric entry.

Although many people witnessed the event, the International Meteor Organization received just 1 report. If you saw this event, submit your report here.
