Witnesses called in to New Zealand's channel 3 news to report sightings of a fiery object that they observed between 6pm and 7pm on Monday.

Kim called in and said that she saw an "object the size of a helicopter on fire." She ran in horror and grabbed her daughter because she thought that "it was about to explode." She insists that the UFO was not a vapor trail but a "ball of fire."

David called in with his story as well. He said that he was picking up his son from Rugby practice and driving towards Wellington when he "saw a huge green or blue ball race across the sky and disappear." He noticed that the ball left a huge stream of vapor which leads him to believe that it was a meteor. He went on to say that " it was a huge ball of light ... and reminded him of some of the dinosaur movies he had seen."

A Cantabrian family also witnessed the beautiful intensity of the "meteor," which came low to the horizon with two bright flashes and trails of smoke:

"Like an arc welder torch, it seemed VERY close and low to us, was waiting for the bang it seemed so close and bright, but obviously moving at tremendous speed. I have never seen anything like this!''

Other witnesses have come forward from Christchurch, Whanganui, Wellington, Kapiti Coast, Nelson and Kaikoura.
