A very bright meteoric event took place over the northern parts of South Africa and southern Botswana / Zimbabwe on Saturday, 21 November 2009 at around 23h00. It was widely seen, as far north as Gweru, Zimbabwe, Durban in the south and Boshof in the west. A few surveillance cameras recorded footage of the actual meteor while others showed their night scene turn into "day" and shadows tracking the movement of the source.
