Meteor shoots over Colorado neighbourhood

While responding to a noise complaint near Denver, Colorado, a police officer’s body-worn camera captured the moment a bright fireball soared through the sky.

The glowing fireball was also spotted by other residents in the area.

Local resident Teia May, whose doorbell camera also recorded the meteor said: “After seeing on the news that there was a meteor seen over Colorado, I checked my cameras and was so stoked to see we had a good view of it too!”

The meteor was spotted at the tail end of Perseids Meteor Shower which had peaked around August 13.
