Meteor Exploding Over South Africa (Video)

On News.com.au:

A METEOR has crashed in a blaze of colour in South Africa, but experts are unable to find where the out-of-space visitor landed. The rare astronomical phenomenon was captured by a local traffic camera and witnessed by locals, British tabloid the Sun reports.

The footage initially shows cars on a busy road, near the city of Johannesburg, when the meteor suddenly streaks across the night sky. The meteor appears as a brilliant green light before it explodes on the horizon, transforming into an orange ball of flame.

One witness told the Sun: “We saw this big green ball of fire. It kind of came out of the sky, out of the blue. “There was a sudden flash, like an orange stripe in the sky, followed by a very bright explosion where the sky lit up as if it was daytime.”

    I live in Oklahoma, all the way in the United States, and i saw a huge green meteor just like this fall a while ago! O.o Is it some sort of phenonomenon??

      If you have a read of H.G.Wells The War of the Worlds, you will find its a very common phenomenon, usually preceeding a full scale invasion.

        indeed, and if you have read/watched Transformers you would also know there is a high chance that those are robots. The reason they can't find the meteor is because, of course, they have transformed into cars and are now living among us.

    The police car video in that series of clips was from the meteor that crashed in the US a week or two ago, not South Africa.

    YouTube User Redshift40 – Sorry the part with the cop car is from the Nov. 18th US fireball. All other film is from South Africa from the Nov. 21st meteor.

    Did anybody see a fireball over Randburg on 25th July 2010, somewhere around 06:00 in the morning? I was travelling on Jan Smuts avenue, through Craighall and saw a fireball travelling north towards Pretoria. It lasted a number of seconds, then broke up into pieces. Initially thought it was a small aircraft in trouble, but it was travelling far too fast for that.
