Dash camera footage shows a meteor-like object light up the pitch black skies and crash to the ground in the Russian city of Murmansk.

If you remember, not too long ago they had a similar incident where a meteor landed and injured hundreds, however this one was much smaller in comparison and didn’t make any sound, according to local reports.

NBC News space analyst James Oberg said that visually this was a bright meteor but it wasn’t “unusually bright.”

The video has over 800k views on YouTube and commenters had all types of observations about it. Most couldn’t believe just how bright a small piece of space debris can get when burning up in the atmosphere, while others joked of it being a UFO.
