This is CCTV footage of the meteor spotted in Gauteng on November 21, 2009, after 11pm, according to Eyewitness News.

Earlier, the Johannesburg Planetarium had requested footage captured by members of the public of a meteor that sped over Gauteng, Mpumalanga, Limpopo and Botswana on Saturday.

"The planetarium and the impact cratering research group at Wits University would be very keen to obtain copies of any video recordings of the meteor seen burning up over South Africa," astronomer Claire Flanagan said on Monday.

"If footage from enough security cameras is available, it could possibly be used to work out where the meteor came from, how fast it was travelling, how high it was, and where it ended up."

Flanagan confirmed on Sunday that it was a meteor that lit up the skies and left many people looking up in awe. - Sapa and IOL
