This awe-inspiring clip manages to perfectly capture the Geminid meteor shower lighting up the sky. 

Alyn Wallace was exploring La Palma in the Canary Islands, Spain, when he filmed the meteor shower last week. 

Clearly surprised when the fireball illuminated the sky, the intrepid explorer appears to look on in awe and said he will remember the sight for the rest of his life. 

The 26-year-old engineer and amateur photographer said: “It was absolutely breathtaking

“It was the peak of the Geminid meteor shower, and I got to see loads of smaller meteors.

“My heart was racing for minutes following. 

“It was incredibly bright, lighting up the mountains in front of us and I think it’s a memory that will remain vivid for the rest of my life.”
