A resident of Riverwoods, in the northern suburbs, caught a ball of fire at his Nest Doorbell Cam, but says he did not even notice until people started talking about the meteor on Twitter.
The meteor seems to have fallen on Chicago.
In the western suburbs, the Woodridge police sergeant also captured the meteor in the dashboard chamber.
The police department shared that video on their Facebook page.
Meteorites are small particles of sand and sand according to ABC 7 meteorologist Chicago Mark McGinnis.
McGinnis says that as he leaves space toward the top of the atmosphere, he comes into contact with friction and lights up.
"That's what they're seeing, that's the light that is produced, and they happen all the time," McGinnis said. "It's just that during the day, obviously, we do not see it, unless it's much more significant."
