By: Babak A. Tafreshi


Region: Americas

Site: Grand Canyon - USA

Date: November 2012

A stunning fireball (bright meteor) streaks the sky above moonlit landscape of Grand Canyon. The canyon's Desert View watch tower is on the right. The Grand Canyon, a World Heritage Site in northern Arizona, USA, is the longest canyon on the Earth, a steep-sided gorge carved by the Colorado River steadily in about 17 million year time span. The canyon is 446 km long, ranges in width from about 6 to 29 km and attains a depth of more than 1.6 km (a mile). See this scene in a timelapse video of sky motion over the Grand Canyon.
