In addition to Alister's comments, I think the Geminids are of the hook. 
If my calculation is correct, the Geminid radiant rises, in Ponsonby, 
after 10:00 UT and sets at 18:00 UT - or in local time it rises after 
23:00 local time and sets at 07:00 local time.

It sounds like an interesting, if unconnected to the blaze, fireball 
report though.
