LAKE CHARLES, Louisiana: A spectacular sight lit up the night sky over Lake Charles in Louisiana on Friday (July 14) as a meteor blazed across the horizon.
A doorbell camera captured the dazzling moment, showing the bright fireball streaking through the darkness.
The American Meteor Society said it received several reports of the meteor sighting from Lake Charles, Houma, Metairie, and New Orleans.
Experts say meteors are fragments of space rocks that burn up when they enter the Earth's atmosphere, creating a flash of light. — Reuters
