A bright fireball was witnessed by many UK citizens on Sunday night, prompting residents of London, Birmingham, Bristol and other regions to flock to Twitter to share the footage they managed to record.
What appears to be a meteor was video-captured from many different angles, with people briefly brought up short by a sudden sky show in their backyard, living room, and some even spotting the fireball in a reflection on their car window.
According to reports on social media, the meteor illuminated British skies at around 10 p.m., local time.
