Posted: Updated:

This amazing video, taken from CCTV footage, shows a meteor lighting up the sky over South Africa the weekend before last.

One resident described the sight to Eyewitness News in South Africa as "like an orange stripe in the sky, followed by a very bright explosion where the sky lit up as if it was daytime."

As of last week, scientists were still looking for where the meteor may have landed, according to the Telegraph.
