Photographer Amazingly Captures A Rare Fireball Explosion In This Stunning Time-Lapse


When Wes Eisenhauer was taking photographs of the night sky, he happened to capture a rare event known as a bolide or (fireball). It’s basically a meteorite that explodes leaving an awesome red dust trail that halos out. Eisenhauer then put together a short time-lapse video of the event…. and it’s pretty freaking sweet to say the least.

It happens around the 4 second mark, lower right part of the screen.

It’s quite the rare event, some astronomers wait decades to see something like this. Make sure to give this a share on Facebook.
