Meteor over Mexico City – Geminids
A spectacular meteor lit up the sky of Mexico City in the early hours of Sunday. The meteor is estimated to have been travelling at more than 12,000mph and could be seen hurtling through the skies over Acapulco and Mexico City’s Xochimilco neighbourhood. Although the precise size of the meteor is hard to determine, experts say its diameter is estimated to be around 500 metres.
Later this week the stunning cosmic light show known as the Geminids meteor shower is expected to reach its peak.
