Caught on camera: the moment a meteor lit up the sky in Russia
A BRILLIANT blue-white light streaks across the night sky in the Russian city of Murmansk, before appearing to flare and disappear from view. The celestial body is believed to be a giant meteorite - similar to the one that exploded above Chelyabinsk in February of last year. The sight was captured on a camera mounted on the dashboard of a car. Emergency services said no injuries or damage was reported.

THEY say curiosity killed the cat - but in this case the cat's curiosity almost killed the camera. Roan Ravenhill, 26, a ranger at the MalaMala Game Reserve in South Africa, mounted a GoPro on a wooden stand and waited for the leopard and her 10-month-old cub to come and investigate. Despite the leopards' attentions, the camera survived intact - leaving behind beautiful footage of the pair playing and exploring.
