According to Japanese media reports, a fireball “bright as a full moon” was seen in the sky of western Japan early on Sunday morning.
According to reports, pictures of the incident showed a large ball illuminating the night sky. Some social media users reported that they heard rumbling sounds when they saw the lights.
According to NHK News, the light is so bright that it can be seen through the closed curtains.
According to Kyodo News, the object is considered a meteor, which is a very bright meteor. Takeshi Inoue, curator of the planetarium in Akashi City, Hyogo Prefecture, told Kyodo News that such bright meteors are rare, and they seem to be “bright like a full moon”.
A similar meteor was found over Tokyo in July, and fragments of it were later found in Chiba Prefecture.
