    4 seconds from start ...


    [ it's time-lapse : "...120 consecutive 30 second exposures ..." , so about 360x normal speed ]

    Saw this on reddit not too long ago. It's a very rare thing to see, especially on film. Really fascinating stuff.

    Yup, tho I suspect that its an interaction between the meteor and the cloud/water vapor
