Central South African radio station OFM announced on Sunday that footage had been sent from a farmer in Ottosdal, showing a meteorite that struck Botswana on Saturday night.

Members of a neighbourhood watch received reports of a bright light before receiving the CCTV footage from Barend Swanepoel and Wikus van Zyl from a farm near Klerksdorp.
