Fireball caught on camera streaking across sky

Residents in San Diego were treated to a surprise light show on Monday night.

The event was captured by at least one woman who was live streaming at the time.

A fireball is a term ordinarily used to describe a very bright meteor, generally with the same luminosity as the planet Venus, which astronomers measure as a magnitude of -4.

The American Meteor Society received over 260 reports of similar sightings with reports from Los Angeles, Arizona and Nevada.

On the video, she hears a startling sound, followed by the big ball of light and jumps.

Demi is speaking to the camera when the fireball zooms by behind her, leaving her shocked and repeatedly asking viewers, "did you guys see that?" Heddings says in the video, her eyes wide.

"I was absolutely scared because I thought it was coming at me". It scared her mid-stream.

"I watched it over and over right away". "I guess I was just at the right place at the right time". "I had to get the reality in my head that it was real", she said.
