Theories abundant over Whitianga big bang
A loud explosion heard in Whitianga overnight is talk of the town this morning.
A resident contacted SunLive saying they heard the big bang around 10pm.
“It sounded like a massive explosion. Everyone is talking about it this morning.”
A video posted to the Whitilive.nz Facebook page shows an explosion in the night sky.
One theory is that it could be a power transformer exploding, although it appears to be high above the town for that.
Other people have taken to social media saying that it was a meteor.
There are no reports of a meteor hitting NZ overnight.
Police, fire and weather organisations have no reports of anything happening in the area that can be attributed to what may have caused the explosion.
Do you know what the bang/explosion was?
