Spectacular meteor over Johannesburg, South Africa videos

November 26th, 2009

On Saturday night at 11pm I noticed the sky outside flare up. At first I thought it was lightning but the light got brighter and brighter until half the sky was blue as if it was daylight and then it was gone. Unfortunately due to the angle and where I was I did not see this spectacular event as the following footage has.


If you watch the video above you will note the cars on the highway brake hard after the explosion. I wonder what was on their minds when they saw that. Nuclear holocaust? But then maybe not everyone is as macabre as me ;)

Not as great… but will post more as more are found.

There are some really great comments over here giving various accounts of what was seen.

The other day this was shown to me:

It seems there was a giant meteor almost exactly 100 years ago… and almost the month. Screw the prawns and give me Species damnit.
