This video footage of a meteor lighting up the night sky happened in Gauteng, South Africa, on November 21, 2009.

From South Africa’s Eye Witness News:

People in Gauteng saw the bright light at around 11pm on Saturday night, heading towards the north of Pretoria.

“We saw this big green ball of fire. it kind of came out of the sky, out of the blue,” one resident said.

“There was 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,” another
explained.

Astronomers and scientists are still trying to find out where the meteor landed.
