Homeowner who heard a loud bang discovers a 15-inch wide blazing crater in his garden in Appling, Georgia

A stunned homeowner in Georgia has spoken about the moment a glowing red meteor crashed outside his house, leaving a huge crater.

Jay Sullivent heard a loud bang while he was at home in Appling, and initially thought it was a car crash.

Unable to find a wreckage he took a walk around his lawn before stumbling on a burned circle of grass with smoke rising from it.

The drama happened on July 21.

When he approached, Mr Sullivent discovered the middle was alight, with a pink rock in the middle.


In a video taken at the time he exclaimed 'it's a damn meteorite' as he flicks the hot object out of the hole with a penknife.

Mr Sullivent said: 'It was so loud that I thought there had been a car accident on the road in front of my house.

'When I got over to the crater it was around 15 inches deep and about the same across. The rock in the middle was glowing red.'
