    A 'meteor' crashed into earth causing tremors and a huge "flash of light" in the sky, it has been reported.

    The fireball was spotted at Turkey Beach and Emerald in Queensland as hundreds of locals took the social media to report their houses shaking and a "burning light" in the sky.

    Police received a number of calls from concerned residents in the Gladstone area, reporting tremors in what was initially believed to be an earthquake.

    Geoscience Australia has since officially ruled out an earthquake and Higgins Storm Chasing crew said a "meteorite impacted somewhere offshore".

    In a Facebook post , the group said: "The light was seen as far south as Hervey Bay and as far north as Yepoon with a tremor being felt upon impact over the general Gladstone area and Boyne Island.

    Witnesses took to social media to describe a "ball of flame falling from the sky" and a "brilliant meteor flash overhead and disappear over the sea".

    One man said he saw a blinding light and felt an explosion before his house shook.

    Another added that he was sitting in his car when he saw the object in the sky.

    "Yahweh, my God, let my prayer reach you,
    hear our cry of mercy and for help,
    forgive those who have no faith in You, my God,
    and no trust either in your power to save us;

    do not blast the lights out of our days,
    withering with it in a flash the earth;

    but in Your Fatherly Compassion,
    pity us, and forgive us;

    do not allow the evil one to shed our blood like water;
    forgive our guilt, repress Your anger,
    remembering our weakness;

    hold back Your angels of disaster,
    giving us one more chance to prove ourselves
    worthy of Your Kindness;

    I put my trust in You; amen"
