UFO type object sighting report - Approx 1 Sep 1999 Like a huge metor type object firey blue/white/yellow with yellow/white tail

UFO type object sighting report - Approx 1 Sep 1999, not 100% when as I didn't think much about it at the time. I was walking home from work at around 9:40 pm EST Melbourne Australia time. I was walking up Swanston Street toward the train station and an unidentifed object streaked accross the sky. It was travelling easterly and was like a large yellow ball of flame with a bright blue centre and had a yellow streak of light behind it. It was simply awsome and I have never seen anything like it. No sound was emitted. I have seen falling stars before, but nothing like this. This thing was comparatively huge and had a much lower trajectory.The object was visible for about 5 seconds, heading in an easterly direction. I just happend to mention it to a work college the next day, and amazingly he saw the same object but at a totally different location about 20 miles away. He claimed he also saw its shape after it had burned out its flame and its light grey color. This is the most bizzare observation of a UFO type object I have ever seen. Cheers Dave 9 September 1999
