The suspected meteorite sighting over Northern NSW on Sunday.

Reports of what appeared to be a large meteorite burning across the Northern Tablelands skies on Easter Sunday have ignited discussion on social media – with some witnesses even catching a video of the falling debris.

The falling meteorite was reportedly seen from Northern NSW all the way up to South East Qld. The incident caught the attention of Higgins Storm Chasing and thousands of people online.

April Worley said she could see it at Armidale. 

“I could see it … coming up Glen Innes Rd, looking into the northern sky,” she said. “I thought, ‘that is a huge falling star’ ... it was incredibly bright.”

Brisbane resident Juanita Boyce said she was walking at 5.55pm when she saw it streak across the sky.
