China fireball: Huge explosion turns night to day - stunning video

STUNNING video footage has emerged showing a fireball exploding over China, briefly turning night to day as what appears to be a space rock hitting the atmosphere lit up the skies over Songyuan in the province of Jilin in northeast China.

Car and street surveillance cameras caught the impressive fireball on film as it lit up the night skies in northeastern China just past the stroke of midnight, local time on October 11. The fireball was so bright it was able to cast shadows, and a freeze frame of the video could easily be mistaken for being filmed in broad daylight. Scientists from the Purple Mountain Observatory of the Chinese Academy of Sciences are currently reviewing the footage to determine what cosmic object caused the light display, although no fragments of meteors have been found in or around the area, according to state-run media outlet CCTV.
