Meteor Falls Toward Earth

`Residents in Perth, Australia, saw the spectacular light show Saturday night. The meteor left a bright tail in its wake.

Karun Cowper, who was enjoying a meal with his family at Halls Head, caught the meteor on his video camera.’

Lucky it wasn’t one of those meteors that fall away from the Earth, because then they wouldn’t be able to film it. I can’t seem to find a copy of the video itself, but there are some still pictures attached to the story.

Update: I’ve found a link with the meteor video.

Update again: There’s a slightly longer meteor video at the BBC, with a bit more information.
