A glowing object appeared in a footage taken in Saudi Arabia, which was confirmed to be a meteor by a leading astronomer. In a video that was shot inside a moving car, this meteor was captured.
A light seemed to be emanating from the meteor as it moved from East towards North.
It was spotted in the town of Rafha in the north of the country, close to the Iraqi border.
Saudi Arabia's daily newspaper Sabq quoted a well known local astronomer, Khaled Al Zuaq, who believed it to be a meteor.
"The object appeared to be a large meteor which was seen crossing the Saudi skies at around 10.30 pm."
This week, an Indian bus driver, V. Kamaraj, died due to being hit by a meteor, the first person to undergo this in 200 years!
The driver had been hit on the head by a large blue stone that resembled a diamond.
