So...this strange collision/explosion happened. No idea what it is, but it's a really neat picture and a great catch. Any thoughts? Sorry if this is already up, I didn't see it anywhere.

Well the video is not on there anymore and every link I have looked up for it has been taken down as well......odd. Even the link from the original video maker on reddit and vimeo are gone. Whats up with that? From what I read on the comments it is believed it was a meteor exploding in the atmosphere.

Title is misleading. Thats in our atmosphere! and yes I know we're part of the Milky way, just not what I was expecting.

Wow!!! Amazing video!! The halo must have been so big.

According to other sources, just like Vasa Croe said, it was a meteor exploding in the atmosphere as it was coming towards Earth.

who would have thought the atmosphere was that hard that it's dispersal was as such, I can't imagine a stony/iron meteorite producing an effect like that , what was it made out of rice crispy's?


very odd looking

Looked like a meteor hitting our atmosphere, you can see the trajectory of it coming in before it explodes.

I believe that is what they call a Bolide. According to Collins English Dictionary:"a large exceptionally bright meteor that often explodes".

Just to bring in something from left field.. Could it be that the meteor "hit" the moisture layer we see the clouds moving along and created a "cloud" which because if its fast trajectory created a ring shape?

Meteorites make these rings when they hit clouds, I forget the term but its pretty nifty lookin!

That is so totally cool!

I've seen some meteoric action in my time, but never one that dispersed in such a manner that was so easy to see... meaning I've never seen a ring of dispersing residue like that.

Pretty darned lucky catch... and beautiful.
