A mystery fireball that illuminated the Thai capital sky on Monday morning forced everyone who witnessed it to share their thoughts about the same on social media. The object, thought to be a meteor, briefly flared up before dying out.
Footage from dashcam clearly shows a fast moving illuminated object diving towards the ground. Thrilled commuters posted various photos and videos of the mysterious object, which seemed to be like a shooting star.
According to local media, the Bangkok Planetarium said there were no reports of a meteorite landing.
