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.”
