There was a meteor that lit up the sky in Argentina Sunday.

Amateur footage from a concert taken about 3 a.m. local time shows how dramatic the meteor looked.

Street camera footage also captured it.

It literally looks like daylight for a split second. Literally.

The meteor was estimated to be about 8 inches, according to Jorge Coghlan, director of the Astronomical Observatory of Santa Fe.
