Central American sky lit up by spectacular meteor burst

Three central American countries got the best fireworks display of 2016, and all for free, when a giant meteor burned up in the Earth’s atmosphere in the skies over Guatemala, El Salvador, and Nicaragua.

Eyewitnesses said it flew across the sky from south to west as it disintegrated, with many posting videos of the light show online. Some reported seven distinct flaming objects.

The spectacular event took place at around 10.30 pm local time, and brought hundreds of people out on the streets to watch.
