Meteor /Space junk over New Zealand

A bright meteor was seen over a large part of the South Island of New Zealand tonight, 19/07/16 at 1826 NZST
Pity the clouds had to photobomb it

Update: This was probably the re-entry of a Soyuz upper stage

  1. This was the re-entry of the Soyuz upper stage (NORAD #41671, COSPAR 2016-045B) which launched the Progress MS-03 supply ship to the International Space Station on Jul 16.
