Fireball meteor streaks through night sky over Cornwall in stunning image

Another one for the Daily Mirror.

Last month, people in Cornwall were in for a surprise, when the sky suddenly lit up as bright as daylight, despite it being 11pm.

The bright flash was caused by a fireball meteor- a meteor even brighter than the planet Venus.

Photographer Chris Small was at the seaside resort of Bude, and caught a stunning photo of the green meteor as it streaked through the sky.

He said: “I see a lot of meteors due to spending so long shooting the night sky, but I’ve never seen anything quite like that before!

“It was incredible, and lit up the entire coast almost as bright as daytime for a few seconds. There were beautiful green and blue colours.”

I am a journalist who’s passionate about climate change and climate justice. For me that’s the most important story I can write about and contribute to fixing. As a journalist, my way of going about it is to educate people about this existential threat that’s bogged down by skepticism, denialism, lack of comprehension of scope, and general apathy.

I also write about a lot of other things, like social justice, protests, pop culture, lifestyle, and esports. Albeit these stories won’t be as frequent as they depend on what I find fascinating and meaningful to write about at the moment.

This website is both my portfolio and my space to share interesting information- about myself or climate change. Any time I’m commission by a publication (fingers crossed) I’ll crosspost it here for all my audience to see.

This site may even turn into an actual blog from time to time. If I have any personal revelations that my audience can learn from, I may share it here
