Meteor sighting above Latvia

On Wednesday, March 25 several eyewitnesses posted on social media about a meteor sighting in the sky above Latvia, and a Latvian Television livestream camera managed to capture the sight from the Rīga city center.

It's possible there were even two - the first one around 8:24 p.m. and the second around 8:47 p.m., but the LTV camera only caught one.

Usually meteors are small rocks that enter the atmosphere and burn. The tiny meteors that appear to us as falling stars are usually the size of a grain of sand, but this one could have been slightly larger. Last year on September 9 a much brighter meteor, or bolide, was sighted in the sky above Latvia.
