If you’re a space nerd like Chuck a situation like this would probably squeal with joy if you were able to witness it.
In case you missed it a crazy meteor lit up the night sky in the UK last week. It could be seen in Ireland and as far east as Edenborough. Tons of videos captured show the multicolored fireball streaking across the planet.
Anyone in #glasgow Just see this??? Was all different colours like a firework but silent? Maybe part of a meteor? pic.twitter.com/tqI48rrCKN— James Shampoo Williams 🏴 (@james_w_89) September 14, 2022
Some thought it was a UFO but it was determined in fact that is was just a meteor.

We just witnessed something bright moving west through the sky which I guess must be something burning up in the earth’s atmosphere. Caught it on the security cameras #meteor pic.twitter.com/GhClBkzNLr— Stevie Doyle (@stevie_doyle) September 14, 2022
Some reports also stated that people heard a loud bang indicating that a meteorite may have landed somewhere in the UK.

One thing is for sure, if Chuck had witnessed a spectacle such as this, he would need a new pair of underpants!
