#OMG: Astrophotographer captures video of meteorite falling on a garden

An astrophotographer has captured the moment a meteorite fell to earth above his garden, lighting up the sky with a huge fireball. Jordan Ragsdale, 39, from Idaho, USA, captured the moment a meteor entered the atmosphere and exploded in a fireball from his backyard. Jordan, who has been an amateur astrophotographer for about five years, captured the images on July 3 with a camera mounted on his roof and designed to detect and capture meteors. According to him, "It appears to be a sizable meteor entering the atmosphere." Translated with www.DeepL.com/… (free version)
