A meteor was observed on Thursday night in several places in Southern Norway. It was also registered by one of the cameras of the Norwegian Meteor Network.

The newspaper VG writes that they have received reports from several people who have observed a meteor. The messages have come from Innlandet, Østfold, and Rogaland.

The Norwegian Meteor Network confirmed that one of their cameras captured footage of a meteor. Steinar Midtskogen in the network says that he thinks people could see the meteor most clearly in Southwestern Norway, around Haugesund.

“It belongs to a meteor shower called the Southern Taurids… It is something that happens every year,” Midtskogen told NRK.

According to the network’s calculations, the meteor completely burned up when it fell over the sea some distance west of Bergen. Midtstein says there will be more opportunities to see meteors in November and December.
