Online Desk:Spotting a meteor during the brief moments it shoots through the sky is pretty exciting – but this week, stargazers in Costa Rica were treated to something even better.

On Tuesday night, a camera monitoring the Turrialba Volcano caught the moment a fireball appeared to dive right through the path of an eruption.

While the scene may look apocalyptic, experts say the unbelievable sight was just a very small chunk of space debris burning up upon impact with Earth’s atmosphere.
