Quite blurry, no? But still you can still clearly see a ball of fire entering the atmosphere directly above the top of Merapi volcano before seemingly crashing into the top of it.
Thankfully, the sky event was captured by a local Indonesian named Gunarto Song, who was able to caught the meteor falling from the sky in all its glory. Just look at these majestic shots!
Gunarto said that he took the photos from a location in Batu Alien in the Kaliadem Cangkringan district at around 11.07pm on May 27th.
“Suddenly there was a bright ray of light as if falling from above onto the top of Merapi volcano… It was super bright and fast. This is an authentic photograph. I took at 4 seconds exposure when I shot it.”
Mount Merapi is a sacred place for those living in and around the area. This majestic video and pictures of a meteor suddenly crashing into the volcano is certainly consistent to the supernatural aura that Mount Merapi exudes amongst the Indonesian people!
