The Adelaide Advertiser newspaper of 30 January 2014 carried a headline "Mysterious green light seen in sky off Adelaide coast."
The story told how residents of sea front suburbs of Adelaide, including Tennyson, West Beach and Hallet Cove had reported sightings on the previous night.( Latitude 34.9 deg south; 138.6 deg east..)
The light in the sky was described as white or orange/red, or green in colour. It was said to be "high in the sky" and was seen about 2200hrs in the western sky. There was no associated sound.
It was also seen from country South Australia, including Beachport (latitude 37.5 deg south; 140 deg east.)
In other words, although the headline said it was seen from Adelaide suburbs it was actually seen over a much wider area of our state.
The Astronomical Society of South Australia suggested the light was either a meteor or a satellite re-entry. This fits all the known data in the newspaper article.
