Late last night, around 4 am Paris time (12 am Newfoundland Standard Time); A small 1-meter asteroid zoomed across the skies above the northern half of the European continent.

it safely struck the earth's atmosphere above the skies of France and could be seen from multiple countries, including the United Kingdom. On impact, it burned up in the atmosphere before reaching the clouds.

Paris, France.

Brighton, England.

It posed no harm to civilization as it was too small to cause any damage. The object was discovered by a group at Konkoly Observatory in Hungary on the same day. The short-lived asteroid was named Sar2667, it entered the atmosphere at a 45-degree angle coming from the East.

It is safe to say that people in Europe had a fantastic light show that night.
