Fireball seen over Thailand

Fireball seen over Thailand
A large, bright fireball was seen streaking across the northern sky of Bangkok about 8.40am on Monday, leaving a trail of smoke, with sightings also reported in Korat and Kanchanaburi, the Bangkok Post writes.

Excited netizens immediately began posting messages, photographs and video on social media.

In Bangkok reports came from many different localities, including the Khlong Tan intersection, Phetchaburi road, Victory Monument and Vibhavadi Ransit, Rama 9, Sukhumvit and Rama 4 roads.

Netizens in Kanchanaburi in the western part of the country also said they also saw the flaming object pass over.

The Kanchanaburi deputy governor said there was no report of a helicopter or aircraft crashed in the province. He assumed the light was the same fireball seen over Bangkok.

There were also reports on Twitter that the fireball was seen over Nakhon Ratchasima about the same time.

Jor Sor 100 radio cited an astronomer in reporting that the fireball might be a meteor streaking down through the atmosphere.

An official at the Bangkok Planetarium, however, said there had been no reports of a meteorite landing. Most meteors completely burn up in the atmosphere. If one did crash to earth, it would probably be noticed, he said.

What was seen across the sky this morning could be a burning balloon, the official suggested

However, information on the website suggested the flaming object was space debris falling back to earth.

Saran Poshyachina, the deputy director of the National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand, said the fireball could be a meteorite landing. But he also did not rule out the possibility it could be space junk.
