DID you see a meteor flash across the Hampshire sky last night? 

Hampshire Roads Policing Unit have shared a video on their Twitter of a meteor lighting up the sky last night. 

It reads: "A little clip of the #meteor seen over #Hampshire earlier this evening! 

"Sometimes the job has us in the right place at the right time."

UK Meteor Network has reported that it has received a number of photos of a "fireball" shooting through the sky at around 9.45pm last night. 

A meteor is also known as a shooting star and is a space rock that is crashing through the Earth's atmosphere.
