When you wish upon a fireball…

This dashcam footage captures a meteor exploding in the sky over Auckland, New Zealand last night. It's not nearly as big as the meteor that hit Russia in 2013, but it is the most exciting thing to happen in New Zealand since the last Hobbit movie wrapped. (Except the exciting new public art in Auckland that looks like a floating phallus.)

An expert claims that this is not technically a meteor, but just a fireball. Just an everyday, ho-hum fireball. I guess since Gandalf rolled through, nobody's impressed by a fireball.
