Huge meteor caught on camera

A streaking meteor that that recently appeared 100 times brighter than a full moon was caught on video camera, scientists announced last week.

As the fireball plunged into Earth's atmosphere on the evening of Sept. 25, it was detected by cameras at the University of Western Ontario in Canada. Footage shows that the meteor, roughly the size of a tricycle, was moving at a speed of 13 miles per second (75,317 kph) as it traveled over southern Ontario.
