Thats a meteorite or an asteroid thats falling. If it actually was a meteor or a comet we would have been doomed.

Guys, meteors are pretty cool. The thing I don't get is why everyone makes like it's the end of the world. These things are always coming in, space is not empty, there's all sorts of stuff out there still. Ever heard of meteor showers? They happen often, as in once or twice a year as the earth moves through clouds of debris. The only one we've really got to worry about for the time being is Apophis...and it's a way out there, and it is highly unlikely that it'll strike the earth.

Good video capture!

#2 That actually happens pretty often. First one to be tracked by automated cameras with it's track (in space) calculated and it's impact place calculated and then recovered there was P?íbram in 1959 found in Czechoslovakia near town P?íbram (but surelly that one wasn't first to be found; total weight of found pcs. cca 1 kg). Yearly there are tens of meteorites not completely blowing in atmosphere and reaching surface of the earth - they usually fall in empty areas like pacific, russian tajga etc. so there is noone to witness it.

And yes, #29 is pretty right. Meteors are quite common. When there are Perseids in activity (activity maxima on 12. august, radiating from constellation Perseus/Cassiopea), on the dark rural spot you may see around 50-100 of them in one hour. Highest ever reported activity of meteor shower was for 1833 Leonids with hundreds of thousands of meteros in one hour! However, most of these was due to small particles because usual meteor or "falling star" is made by a particle of the size of dust grain. Spectacular bolids like one in the vid are made by larger particles from the size of sand through pebble to rocks of weight of few kgs. And when the rock enetering earth's atmosphere is of the size of a smaller car, then a small amount (few kgs) might reach the surface after rest is vaporized in atmosphere.

I call fake, look at 0:06, you can see a second reflection. I think this was made with a large photo with a window in front of it, then you take a lamp with a varible intensity knob to brighten and then dim the light. I couldn't see why someone would just happen to have a camara aimed in the odd direction for no reason.
