This is the incredible moment a massive fireball was spotted hurtling through the atmosphere towards Earth.
Amateur stargazer Drew Buckley captured the breath-taking sight of a meteor blasting through the stratosphere before burning up.
Drew set up his camera at Carew Castle, in Pembrokeshire, to take pictures of star trails – beautiful circular portraits that track the movement of stars across the night sky – when he accidentally photographed the trail of the flaming meteor.
He said: “A few minutes into the sequence I struck gold by capturing a massive fireball directly in my field of view – lucky isn’t the word!
“However, I had to wait to the end of my hour long session to see if I had caught it.
“It was quite slow moving burning bright greens and oranges as it travelled over the countryside, breaking into pieces was quite a surreal sight to witness.”
