Brilliant midnight fireball illuminates the sky over northeast China



What appears to be a blinding meteor burned the sky over northeast China on Friday (October 11th), appearing as a brilliant fireball in surveillance videos.

The meteor occurred at about 12:16 pm full time in Beijing, turning into daylight and throwing dark shadows as they made their way across the sky, according to state CCTV. The videos of the fireball were captured by surveillance cameras in the city of Songyuan in Jilin province, as well as by many residents across northeast China, FTV reported.

The meteor is also visible from the Fellongjiang province, the news agency reported.
