A mystery object sighted in the Auckland night sky is probably... the moon.
A member of the public emailed the New Zealand Herald after spotting a "blazing" object in the sky last night.
Their photos showed what seemed to be a bright object streaking across the sky.
The witness said the object was seen about 6.41pm yesterday.
They said when the bright light dissipated, a foggy or hazy cloud hovering lingered in the area until all the light dimmed.
Stardome Observatory investigated.
"Our astronomer has taken a look at the images and based on the time, altitude, and brightness he believes it is the Moon shining through the cloud cover," a spokeswoman said.
