A camera that films the Turrialba volcano in Costa Rica captured an unbelievable sight — a meteor passing by during the eruption.

Though the footage is only six seconds long, it’s still pretty cool.

Eric Sanchez, a spokesperson from the San José Planetarium, told Q Costa Rica that the sighting was a shocking first for the camera, which has been operating since 2011.

People who saw the flash on Wednesday night thought it might be a UFO.
