Flaming meteor blazing across UK skies captured in dramatic footage

By Leigh Mcmanus & Matt Drake

A huge meteor has been caught on camera flying over Britain. The meteor was seen in several places in the UK with one man in St Albans, Hertfordshire, spotting it at about 12.40am on Thursday, May 12.

It was also spotted in south Wales with one man claiming it was like "someone setting off a white flare beside me". Another man, Chris Chadfield, captured the fireball on CCTV in Crawley, West Sussex, The Daily Star reports.

Astronomer Will Gater said: "Chris Chadfield caught the fireball on camera! Looks just as I saw it. For reference Moon was at magnitude -10.9. Another bright meteor fireball over the UK last night at 23:40UT."

UK Meteor Network said they received over 200 public reports after a fireball last night at 11.39pm. In January, people across the UK reported seeing a flaming meteor light up the sky - as shocked spectators stood in awe of the spectacle.

Spectators saw the blue and green flaming rock over large parts of Scotland, as well as parts of England, and Wales. But reports of something strange in the sky come from as far as the Netherlands.

After shooting across the sky the meteor eventually burned up in the earth’s atmosphere before its debris crashed to the ground. One onlooker told the Daily Record : "It appeared from nowhere and travelled at speed, losing altitude as it passed."

While stargazers in North Wales told North Wales Live : "It was going so fast we questioned ourselves. I’m so glad you posted this. I no longer feel like I was seeing things!"
