A beautiful video captured by the Italian astronaut, will not leave anyone indifferent.
Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli, currently on the ISS, recorded a video of a time of entry of the meteorite in the dense layers of the atmosphere over the Atlantic.
A brief flash is visible in the right corner of the screen in the seventh second of the video, says “Popular mechanics”.
“At ISS we see a lot of meteors, but I never managed to capture them on camera. This time I was lucky I captured a bright fireball. It appeared to be a very fast meteor, which was moving at a speed of 40 kilometers per second,” – said Nespoli on Twitter.
Representatives of the European space Agency announced that it is about a celestial body with a diameter of less than one meter, which was moving two times faster than normal meteor. The body may be part of a meteor shower, or Leonids Tauride.
