What Is It?

It's a plane! It's a bird! It's a burning UFO! Is it the herald of the apocalypse? Kind of, but not quite. What this is, is a nice photo taken by a very lucky photographer.

I have a hard time believing this unique shot of a meteor striking through the Earth atmosphere was taken with a mobile phone camera, but looking at the image through Photoshop, it seems it is indeed a real photo. Or maybe it's not a meteor but a sundog, like some people in the comments pointed out.

The photographer, 31-year-old Matthew Pinless from Cheltenham, England, claims that the object raced through the sky. If it was indeed a meteor, he must have been really fast to take out his mobile phone, and shoot quickly enough to snap two pictures of it. Whatever it was, it's good shot. [Daily Mail]
