Footage obtained from a farmer in Ottosdal in South Africa's North West shows what appears to be a meteorite crashing into Botswana.

Central South African radio station, OFM, published the video on Sunday while CCTV footage from Barend Swanepoel and Wikus van Zyl from a farm near Klerksdorp was sent to members of their neighbourhood after they received numerous reports of a bright light in the sky.

Various other South African eyewitnesses reported seeing the meteorite strike too, sharing their own videos in the comments section of this Facebook post.

The location matches an object discovered by the Catalina Sky Survey, an American near-Earth object observation program, that projected an impact at around the same time. It was discovered a little over eight hours before the impact.

Apparently, a provisional meteorite observation report, designated ZLAF9B2, was filed for the event.
