A passerby has caught the moment a meteor flew across the sky in Turkey, causing green flashes of light.

Onur Kaçmaz, who was filming, was at a children's park in the evening when the dark sky put on a display of colour.

The clip was captured as it passed over the city of Erzurum and Gumushane Province in the east of the country.

Clouds appeared to be 'lit up' in the spectacular moment, thought to be caused by a meteoroid entering the Earth's upper atmosphere and heating up due to friction.

The incredible moment a meteor blazed across the sky of a town in North England was captured on a mum's doorbell camera.

Hayley Jensen, 35, captured the footage of the fireball on her CCTV early on Sunday morning. In the footage, the blazing space rock is seen streaking across the sky at around 5am.

Hayley was leaving the house on her way to a car boot sale when she spotted a bright flashing light in the sky. When she checked the footage from her doorbell camera, she was shocked to see a fiery meteor hurtling over the rooftops.

The mum-of-one said: "It lasted about three seconds. At first I thought it was a firework but it was just a huge ball of light.

In Angarsk , Irkutsk region, an intercom camera captured video footage of a meteorite flying over the region. They are published by IrkutskMedia on its page on VKontakte .

The footage shows a celestial body that flies over a house in the Russian region and disappears behind it. This is accompanied by a light flash.

Director of the ISU Astronomical Laboratory Sergey Yazev , whose words are reported by RIA Novosti , considered that the celestial body was unlikely to have reached the earth - it most likely burned up in the atmosphere.

Prior to this, on April 7, an unknown object flew in the sky over the Ust-Kutsky district of the Irkutsk region and got on the video of outdoor surveillance cameras. City authorities suggested that it was a meteorite or a fragment from it. The fall of the meteorite was accompanied by a bright flash, some residents confused it with a rocket, which caused a little panic.
