Meteor Space Junk Burns Across Southern California Sky

Enters atmosphere with its own pumping theme music too:

On my way home and caught this on the freeway. The camera doesn’t capture it very well but the meteor was sparking a lot and had a green light to it. (Song is: Mt. Eden — Sierra Leone [Tommie Sunshine & Live City Remix])

According to NASA, the green hue that is described of the explosion indicates that the object contained magnesium, which suggests this was probably man-made space debris coming back down to Earth. Different metals glow different colours. The Griffith observatory additionally confirmed that the this blazing ball was likely a piece of descending space junk. Still, a cool capture.

That bass drop though..
