CCTV captures moment meteor explodes over Swansea
A man from Swansea captured the moment a meteor lit up the sky above his house.
The moment was caught on CCTV at the home of Mark Statham in the Parc Gwernfadog estate, Cwmrhydyceirw, Swansea.
The 47-year-old first thought it was a firework when he checked the footage taken at 1:45am on May 20, but after sending the clip to the UK Meteor Network they confirmed that it was, in fact, a meteor.
''I had not seen anything like that in the past.'' Mark said.
''It was quite surprising really, I'm guessing it has come into the atmosphere at a time of day where by chance it was visible.''
