NZ Meteor

I've just got a message, via the family grapevine from my cousin (via my auntie and my dad), of a meteor hitting a farm near Christchurch in New Zealand. My cousin, along with plenty of other people from Ashburton to Wellington and Wairarapa reported a loud sonic boom and a large fireball. The New Zealand Herald has plenty of eyewitness reports (should that be earwitness?).

Strangely, the Bad Astronomer just had a post about a meteor over Western Australia last December.
