Multiple videos have surfaced on social media showing a giant fireball illuminating Colorado's skies early Sunday morning. The spectacle happened around 3:30 a.m., and only a few people who were awake at the time were able to witness it. According to NASA, a fireball is an unusually bright meteor.


Many residents shared the visuals gathered by their doorbell and security cameras, showing the celestial event unfolding in the skies. As seen in several clips, the meteor appears to flash brightly before scattering into smaller pieces as it fades into the sky.


The spectacle was spotted all over Colorado and a few other places in the United States, as recorded by the American Meteor Society.


Aificial News obtuvo imágenes del entusiasta del clima Edward Hurrell que muestran el meteoro ardiente alrededor de las 3:30 am volando por el cielo en Broomfield, a unos 25 minutos en auto al norte de Denver .

Other videos circulating online show the meteor flashing brightly before breaking up into smaller pieces and fading from view.







Per NASA, fireballs and "bolides" are exceptionally bright meteors that are spectacular enough to be seen over a wide area.


Objects that cause fireballs usually aren’t large enough to survive passage through Earth’s atmosphere intact.
