DENVER -- It's a sight not many people are fortunate enough to see, but one that a Colorado resident was fortunate enough to capture.

Denver7 started getting calls about a meteor falling from the sky at around 6:50 p.m.

One viewer who did not wish to be identified told Denver7 he was at Holly and 120th Avenue when he spotted the falling rock going down in what he said appeared to be an area near Sports Authority Field. He said it happened at around 6:45 p.m.

At around 8:30 p.m., a Denver viewer from Littleton emailed the newsroom and said he caught the meteor on his dash cam on his way home Thursday evening. "It was traveling to the south," the viewer told Denver7. 

He said he was driving near the area of Bowles and Wadsworth in Littleton when the sighting took place.
