Matt Perry, from Fife, saw the "burning light" south of Boarhills in Fife while he was driving along the A917 at about 11pm on Monday.
The footage clearly shows a bright light appear and crash down towards the ground.
"I believe it was a meteor coming down to earth," he said.
"Pretty cool I thought."
Mr Perry said he has heard of similar sightings in West Lothian and a friend of his in Inverness claimed to have witnessed a similar experience.
It’s thought it could be linked to a bolide – a bright meteor that explodes in the atmosphere - which was captured four minutes earlier on the same evening in Derby.
