A huge meteor has been seen in the skies over central Victoria.

There have been reports of a big red and blue light streaking
over the Castlemaine area just after 1:00am AEST today.

Policewoman Senior Constable Sharon McEachern says she was
on patrol duty with a colleague in Maldon when she saw the
light in the sky.

She says it was a spectacular sight that lasted about 15

"A bright blue light going across the sky...not coming
straight down and it just had a large blue tail and a bright
red ball and then as it went across it just exploded into
pieces, so I'm not sure whether it was a comet, or a
meteor, or what it was," she said.
