Glorious Geminid meteor shower fireball captured at police dashcam

The annual Geminid meteorregn is showing an actor in the month, and a Indiana police officer caught a good performance from a certain fireball a week.

Chris Cramer with Howard County Sheriff's Department was out on patrol when his dashcam picked up a blazing green fireball blast over the sky Wednesday night. It will then disappear in the darkness. The department split the movie on Facebook on Thursday.

"Cpl. Cramer caught what seems to be a meteor into our atmosphere on his dash camera near 600 E. on SR22," wrote the sheriff's department.

Cramer screening seems to match with reports made to the American Meteor Society of a fireball discovered from Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and Pennsylvania that night. An observer saw sparks coming from the fireball. Another said it looked like it would land on the highway.

Not everyone will be so lucky to see such a massive volleyball from Gemini, but there should be plenty of opportunities to catch a falling star as meteor shower continues to show itself to the earth's enjoyment.

Here's how we show meteor shower, both personally and online.
