Tonight I was walking home from the supermarket and saw an unusual shooting star.
It appeared at a point in the sky, bright red and accelerated to a visible extent far faster than any other shooting star I have seen, in an apparent downward trajectory. Living in Australia my entire life I have seen many shooting stars but none of them has red color either. And it did not seem to diminish brightness, and disappeared from sight at a singular point.
My guess at this point is a firework that was fired from an aircraft or drone, strapped to some sort of fire retardant apparatus to quell the energy upon release.
Does anyone else have better ideas?
