A Meteorite Exploded in This Guy’s Timelapse And We’re All Left Wishing We Were That Lucky

The world is a beautiful place. In this video, we’re shown that space wanted to join in on the beauty as well as a meteorite exploded in this guy’s timelapse! This is truly a remarkable and lucky capture. You can tell by the quality of the timelapse that the guy at PermaGrin Films knew what he was doing. It’s beautifully captured and the location is stunning.

See for yourself. If anything, this will make you want to get out there and shoot. If you’re not the one doing it, who will be the next person to capture a meteorite exploding?

Meteorite Explosion – Santa Cruz, CA 7-21-15

Via Vimeo Description:

While shooting some timelapses, we saw a huge bright flash in the sky. It even lit up the entire ground. We looked up and saw a huge streak across the sky of burning dust. I did the calculations and the dust fell from the sky for at least 50 frames of my timelapse. Each exposure was 15 seconds long, so that means the burning dust fell for 12.5 minutes. CRAZY!!! This was shot at Shark Fin Cove just north of Santa Cruz on July 21st, 2015 by @PermaGrinFilms – instagram.com/permagrinfilms/
