Meteor entry caught on police dash cam


Recommended Posts

it only seems like there's more of them, because there are so many unattended / security / monitoring cameras rolling at any given time. meteor entries of that magnitude brightness, that don't make impact, happen quite frequently. here's an image to add perspective:




several meteorites hit the earth each year. many more never make it to the ground, and burn up in the atmosphere. for the most part, they all produce these awesome fireballs. i've personally seen two of them like this in my lifetime; one when i was a kid rounding up the dairy cows before sunrise (it was bright enough to make a flash, even though the sun was almost up), and another during the super bowl in like 2005 or '06 that shook windows in the next town over.
