A Grand Junction police officer was driving near Sam's Club when out of the night sky at 12:06:06 AM came an unbelievable sight.

A meteor shot through the sky, illuminating the western end of the Valley.

The officer's dashboard camera captured the whole thing.

Scientists believe the meteor was about the size of a microwave or refrigerator.

They say it broke apart as it entered our atmosphere.

Only small pieces hit the ground.
