The fireball, believed to have been a meteor, was captured on cameras across South Australia and Victoria, reports ABC News. The "fireball," as NASA has classified it, lit up the skies over Victoria and South Australia before crashing into the waters of the Great Australian Bight on Tuesday.
A CCTV camera on Royal Adelaide Hospital's helipad captured the moment the fireball burned as it crashed to the ground. The footage was shared online by South Australia Health, where it has collected over 99,000 views.

"The whole night sky glowed a brilliant orange with what looked like a comet with flames shooting from Earth to the atmosphere," Facebook user Katie Wahlheim described the scene, according to the New York Post.
