Meteorite Captured Exploding in Earth atmosphere - Video

Photographer Wes Eisenhauer has taken some pretty extraordinary footage of the night sky you’ll want to see.

While filming a timelapse of the Milky Way Galaxy on October 16, Eisenhauer captured a fireball in the sky that seemed to spontaneously explode.

This incredible phenomenon is actually known as a bolide (meaning missile in Greek), which is basically a meteorite that explodes, leaving behind a red dust trail.

But if you watch closely, after this fireball explodes, it leaves a heavenly halo in its wake-it’s definitely something you need to see to believe.
