NBC - A fireball meteor caught the attention of many Friday night across the east coast.
Scientists say events like this can be rare to see and even harder to catch on camera. But one Ohio resident was able to do that.
Angela McClain, along with 60 others were at Faith Ranch in Jewett, Ohio for an astronomy workshop.
"I decided to set up the camera and program it to take a series of long exposures in order to later on make a star trail out of it," McClain said.
Little did she know she was about to capture a rare shot of a fireball meteor.
Chris Parma, an astrophysicist estimates that there have been about 10 or 12 unpredicted fireballs this month alone.
He says that could mean that earth passed through a new area of debris along its orbit.
