A mysterious ‘fireball’ has been seen blazing across the northern Bangkok sky and has been captured by multiple dashcams around the capital city.
One dashcam in particular caught the moment head-on as the fireball, thought to be a meteor, burst into flames in plain sight.
Locals took to social media to report the sighting, but there is still no official confirmation of what it actually was.
@W7VOA Way too fast to be a satellite re-entry. Only possibility is a meteor/bolide.
