Impressive footage has emerged of a meteor “breaking up” in the skies above Los Angeles.
The video, captured by Adrian Garcia, 21, on January 29 in La Puente, California, shows the fiery space rock splitting into three pieces as it fell towards earth.
“My girlfriend and I were sitting in her car facing south when all of a sudden a meteor or space junk started to burn up in our atmosphere,” Adrian explained.
“The meteor must have been streaking through the sky for about 20 seconds.”
“I first noticed it coming from the western sky through my passenger window, and it seemed to be at a very low orbit,” he continued.
