Meteor Fireball

During the early hours of the morning, a massive fireball of a meteor tore across the skies of the country and many people in Plymouth (where I live) have commented that they saw it. Unfortunately, I was tucked up in bed at the time so missed it! In fact, why would most people be up at approx 3:20am anyway!?! 😉

The meteor was so bright and fiery due to the high levels of magnesium that are suspected in it, and this reacted with the atmosphere to give this amazing scene!

Here is the youtube video of the meteor.
