A MYSTERIOUS ball of light was caught on CCTV camera cutting through the sky in Swindon – and it is believed to be a meteor. 

Terry Knibbs was sleeping when his Nest Hello doorbell camera captured the footage at 4.06am on Sunday in Grange Park. 

The 74-year-old checked the footage the following day and showed it to his son-in-law Andrew Tingay.

Andrew told the Adver: “The Neste cameras will inform you and give you a list of different things that it picked up. It’s quite a clever system, and that was one of the clips, so Terry went through it and one of the highlights just show like a screenshot almost with a just a bright light. 

“He asked me ‘does that look like a firework?’, so I did a little bit of research, and we both decided it was a meteor, there’s no doubt about it. 

The dad-of-two added: “I searched on Google, watched other videos, and it was like most of the other meteor videos, so it looks pretty consistent, with what I’ve seen before. 

“I thought I’d put it on Facebook, and see what people say, some people said it was a firework, but clearly not, but more people were opposed to this, and said the same sort of thing, that it definitely looked like a meteor.” 

Andrew, who lives in Freshbrook, has got cameras on his house as well but didn’t catch it. 

The 41-year-old added: “They were not pointed in the same direction, so I didn’t have any more of them. 

“It’s the first time I’ve ever seen one on video or anything like that. That’s the good thing about doorbell cameras, home CCTV, they do catch those sorts of things.” 

The video was posted on Facebook on the public group Swindon Community Notice Board. 

Hannah Brown said she saw it in Royal Wootton Bassett. 

Orchid Stamenville said: “ I thought I saw something but I didn’t know I was mistaken because there was a plane afterwards.” 

Riley Manning said: “You can clearly see it’s a meteorite.”
