DID you see a strange light in the sky over Hervey Bay on Monday night?

Toogoom resident Maggie MacLeod did and she's curious to know what other people made of it.

"There was this bright comet-like object with a small tail - it looked like a plane was on fire," she said on the Chronicle's Facebook page.

"I went over to the beach to watch it. It was going down, then sideways and then the tail disappeared.

"I went up to a group of people on the beach and pointed it out to them ... by this time it was a big red ball in the sky near where the sun had set.

"We all watched it for another 10 minutes or so and then all of a sudden it grew a tail again, sprouted sideways and disappeared."
