Spotted from my home in Menindee NSW at 0445. What a tail. Easily visible to the naked. Got a call from the night conductor on this morning's westbound "Indian Pacific", who saw it after departing Ivanhoe NSW.
A "cosmic kickball" -- awesome!
A great still of it at www.adelaide.com.au if you click on the front page story, then click on the red camera box at the top. Rather awesome.
