Some Filmmakers Accidentally Captured an Exploding Meteor in Timelapse Footage

Recommended Posts

PermaGrin Films was in Santa Cruz, California a few nights ago, shooting some timelapse porn of the night sky and the Milky Way in particular, when they captured what appears to be an exploding meteor.

As the PermaGrin team describes it, “we saw a huge bright flash in the sky. It even lit up the entire ground. We looked up and saw a huge streak across the sky of burning dust.” PermaGrin was shooting 15 second exposures, and they counted visible meteor dust in 50 frames—meaning the stardust was falling for longer than 12 minutes.
