A doorbell camera captured the spectacular moment a meteor illuminated the night sky.
Jared and Jessica Gilstrap were lying in their bed in Fullerton, California, in the early hours of November 2, when an unexpected flash coming from outside their window captured their attention.
Jared and Jessica quickly got up and checked the doorbell camera to find out a large meteor had crossed the night sky in front of their property.
Jessica said: “Our original reaction was that we thought someone was outside our bedroom window with a flashlight, maybe the neighbour looking for something.
“My husband then said he saw a smoke streak in the sky, so we thought maybe it had been a meteor.
“I told him let’s look and see if we can see anything on the Nest Cam, and there it was!”
