A giant green fireball was captured by space cameras across Sweden at 10.27pm on November 7, 2020.

The Norwegian Meteor Network received close to 100 reports of a powerful fireball seen in Norway on Saturday.

Videos of the space bolide, much brighter than a full moon, were uploaded on Youtube, showing the ball of fire crossing the night sky before falling on the horizon.

During the disintegration, night turned into day:

The Norsk Meteornettverk calculated that the bright meteor was travelling at 17.4 km/s at an altitude of ~83 km (50 miles) when entering the atmosphere.

During its 3-5 seconds of disintegration, the 1.5 m (5 feet) space rock traveled North-East and released the equivalent of 180 t TNT.

It is still unclear if the 5 tons meteor fireball has produced meteorites. meteorite hunters, be ready! More meteor fireball news on Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle.

  1. That’s just like the one I saw about four years ago. Like high noon sun at 0400hrs. Amazing when you see it live.

      • When I was 11, in the High Sierras, we camped out. Saw a fireball go overhead to the horizon. It looked like a spheroid on fire. It was low, but we were high up too. My best friend saw it, but fell back asleep. It was moving so fast that in less than one second it crossed the horizon line out of view. Pretty spooky. It did not explode. Probably right above the atmosphere.

        We get shooting stars in the mountains up here. No city lights. I still enjoy those quite a bit. Offgrid, so it’s as entertaining as it gets. lolollolllollllolllll
