Dascham footage captured the spectacular moment a meteor whizzed across the night sky in the Philippines.

Driver Vernon Ceballos was driving home when the shooting star appeared over the road in the Tramo district of Pasay City in Manila on June 15.

He said: ‘It was just so fast, but amazing because I caught something unusual scene like that.’

A meteor, also called a shooting star, formed when an object in space called a meteoroid enters the earth’s atmosphere at high speed and burns up. Sometimes they survive the trip through the atmosphere and hit the ground, at which point they are known as meteorites.
