Anyone glancing upwards in Perth, the South West and the Wheatbelt around 7:30 last night was lucky to see a large meteor blazing across the sky
The fireball has been caught on phone cameras and dashcam videos, which are doing the rounds on social media.
The spectacle caused alarm for some who questioned whether a plane was going down, or if the blazing light would cause a fire somewhere.
But it's believed the space rock made impact somewhere in the Wheatbelt, where residents in York said they heard a loud bang.
It's expected meteorite hunters will be heading to the area to check it out.
