Glowing globe arcing over Wellington and disintegrating in atmosphere

One golden glowing fireball traversed an arc of 25 to 30 degrees in the atmosphere above the suburb of Ngaio in Wellington. The visible size from the observation point was a glowing orb shaped craft of 1 to 1.5 cm diameter. It appeared as a circular fireball without a tail nor corona. The craft seemed to disintigrate in the atmosphere rather than disapear, although the craft did not change shape. The height above gound and the arc being traversed suggested it would crash into the ground, had it not disintegrated. After this sighting, both my 18 year old son (who did not see the event, and myself started to experience body somatics, itchiness and aching in the joints. I experienced some minor pain in my eyes,and some slight nausea. Going outside the house tended to increase itchiness. This suggested there was an accident where the craft was destroyed in the atmosphere emitting low level eltero magnetic radiation.
