Pic: Mayo man catches an image of a meteor breaking up over Castlebar

This is very impressive indeed.

It's not every day something like this is captured so well, so fair play to Colin Redmond who captured this meteor breaking up and exploding over the skies of Manulla, County Mayo on Friday night.

He explains: "Every so often you get a "lucky" shot and this is one of them.

"I was up on Crucspullagadaun in Manulla last night attempting to do some astro photography when, just as I started a 15 second shot, this meteor came across the sky at 11.45pm and lit the place up. It also gave an audible bang as it broke up.

"The lit up area on the ground is Castlebar."
