You were likely sleeping on Sunday morning when the Colorado sky was lit up by some sort of celestial object, but thanks to cameras being everywhere in this day and age, you can still see it! 

The bright light was seen streaking across the sky around 3:33 a.m. on Sunday morning. 

The American Meteor Society (AMS) has more than 80 pending fireball reports listed on their website. The pending reports, most of which were made in Colorado, all list similar times. These are reports that have been submitted but have not been reviewed, approved or linked to a particular fireball, according to the AMS website.

The Perseids meteor shower is happening now. It’s past its peak, but the bigger meteors, called fireball meteors, are more common toward the end of August. 

Although this doorbell camera is in black and white, you can see how bright it must have been, lighting up the entire block…
