Watch a meteor explode in the sky during meteor shower [Video]

That happened during the recent Perseid meteor shower:

It was taken early in the morning on August 12, 2013 from my backyard in Victorville, CA… The fade to white is NOT an edit — it is overexposure due to the sun coming up. From what I can tell, the time lapse sequence of the explosion and expanding debris span an actual time of approximately 20 minutes.

Incredible, no?
