"Meteors coming into the Earth's atmosphere happen fairly often but we don't always get to see them," said CNN meteorologist Haley Brink.
"Nowadays we have so many satellites in space and cameras on the ground that these events are becoming more and more visible to the general public."
That's what we call awesome.
