Last week residents in Ottawa Lake, Michigan, were surprised when a huge fireball meteor shone over the sky.
The space rock rose through the Lower Michigan sky on Saturday morning – and the entire incident was recorded on camera by a happy viewer on his dashcam.
Cal Pawson said to M Live: "I can tell you personally that this was such a great experience to see firsthand.
"So much bigger than it looks in the video. At first, I thought it was a plane that came over the trees, but certainly drove too fast for an airplane.
"By the time I realized what it was, it had just bled over the road."
Meteor observations occur when a space rock comes close enough to the earth and enters the earth's atmosphere.
As soon as it reaches our atmosphere, the stone evaporates and burns out and produces a beam of light in the night sky.
Because of their appearance, these light rays often become & # 39; shooting stars & # 39; mentioned, although they are not stars at all!
If you want to see a meteor for yourself, it is fortunate that you don't have to wait long for the next meteor shower.
The Delta Aquarids Meteor Shower will reach the evening on July 28, during which time there are expected to be no fewer than 20 meteors per hour!
