Meteor hits Scotland

Many people called the police in Aberdeenshire in Scotland when they say a fireball in the sky which alarmed them.
It has been suspected that it was a meteor about the size of a tennis ball.
I have posted the video from a dashcam that recorded some of the incident.

Something the size of a tennis ball can make a noise that could be heard in County Durham all the way from Aberdeenshire :o
Imagine if it was a one the size of say a football pitch :o

There are many thousands of occurrences of these.
They are not too important and are don't pose too much of a problem.
