THERE have been multiple reports of a bright burning light in the sky on the Mid North Coast this evening.

There have been multiple reports to police of flares spotted out at sea off Coffs Harbour, Taree and Port Macquarie.

There have also been similar reports on Queensland's Sunshine Coast and in Toowoomba.

It is understood the object may have been a meteorite.
