Meteorite plunges into ocean off Australian coast

We’ve recently seen the fireworks show that happens when a blazing meteorite unleashes a fireball across the daytime sky, as this one recently did in California. We have also seen the amazing new and exotic minerals that they hold, some of them even older than Earth.

But I’ve never seen a shot of a meteor falling through the waning light of a sunset before. This beautiful photo was captured by Perth resident Gavin Trought as a meteor likely disintegrated through the path of the setting sun.

What are the chances of capturing a shot like that? Astronomical perhaps! A gorgeous picture.
