SEDALIA, MO (KCTV/AP) -- While on routine patrol, a Sedalia Police Department officer was able to capture a meteor on dash camera.

"This is one of the clearest and overall best videos we have seen. We just had to share it with you guys," the department said on their Facebook page.

The apparent meteor also brightened the night sky over St. Louis.

The National Weather Service posted a video of the flashing light streaking across the area Monday night with homes in the background. It was captured by a volunteer storm spotter in the suburb of O'Fallon.

Other videos posted on social media showed the Gateway Arch in the background. KSDK-TV Meteorologist Scott Connell says the odds of finding part of the apparent meteor are slim, because it most likely burned up completely.
