Eyewitness Hilario Quintana Charlot was reported saying he saw a light descent in the sky “which lit up everything, and then two or three minutes later, two explosions in a row”.
A dashcam video shared on Twitter also shows the fireball falling through the sky, before exploding as it hit the horizon.
The uploader said: “If there is anybody out there who can explain what just happened, please do.”
One person commented on the footage, saying: “Meteor exploded in Cuba, but we saw it in Jamaica.”
Another person said: “Saw this too, was a bit closer, I just made a wish.”
