Meteor Spotted in UK Night Sky

Several places in the UK were able to observe a meteor shooting across the sky Sunday night. The fireball meteor was so bright it was captured by Nest doorbell cameras. It was seen all the way from Bath in the southwest to Yorkshire in the north as well as Sowerby Bridge, West Yorkshire, Somerset, Nuneaton, and Appley Bridge near Wigan.

According to NASA, fireball meteors are not unusual, appearing a couple of times a year and that Earth is hit by 100 tonnes of debris from space daily.
