If you know me, you know that few things thrill me more than a crystal clear night sky with nothing but the light of the stars reaching into the depths of the sky to a degree that we can barely even make sense of.

That's why videos like this one are so rare and so amazing.

A driver in Sea Girt happened to have a clear view of the eastern sky yesterday as a fireball burned through Earth's atmosphere.

Here, take a look:

Meteors categorized as "fireballs" aren't necessarily rare, debris is burning up in Earth's atmosphere all the time, but it's not particularly common for them to be so bright that they can be seen during the day, and of course when they are and you get to spot one, not many of us have cameras rolling, which makes this local video pretty special.

Did you spot yesterday afternoon's fireball? If so, tell us where you were!
