i saw a comet shaped fire ball in the sky moving at an extraordinary speed.

as i was driving my car along the princess highway towards wollongong nsw australia i looked into the sky towards the south west. the sun was setting and there were some clouds.I noticed a comet shaped object up near the clouds. I then looked away for about 30seconds when i looked back i noticed the oject had moved a concederable distance. i watched for a few more seconds and then looked away to watch the road. then for a few minutes i lost sight of the object. i then turned on to the bulli pass as i turned i noticed the object again up in the sky on my right hand side it was much closer this time it was much larger in the sky but was a very distinctive shape like a comet or metior. the sky was red and the object apeared the same colour .in my work as a gemologist my eyes are trained to distinguish shapes within stones . the shape of this object was very distinctive comet shape and was definetley moving quite fast.
