    Stargazers in Albuquerque, New Mexico claimed they sighted a rare celestial phenomenon, a huge fireball shooting through the sky.

    Musician Amber Coffman shot some striking footage of a suspected meteor, revealing that she “saw one of the craziest things” she has ever witnessed.

    ​She called it “a meteor for the ages”, sharing a video on Twitter which showed a bright green fireball shooting through the sky and ending with a trail. The celestial phenomenon illuminated the sky and dark clouds as it glided by.

    Amber told one of her followers that "maybe the clouds obscured most of the visible trail" but claimed that "the trail was highly visible in person."

    ​Another user shared a video on the same Twitter thread, stating that he saw a similar phenomenon.
