A massive fireball was captured in London and across UK on March 17, 2016 at around 3:16 am.
The extremely bright fireball momentarily overloaded the camera with light, then disintegrated silently.
The first video is from the Church Crookham station in northeast Hampshire, England, located 39 miles (63 km) southwest of London:
