FlamingIt is seen as jumping from a high altitude in large areas of Japan, which has attracted the attention of TV and social media. On Sunday, the meteor quickly landed and passed through the Earth’s atmosphere, emitting a strong light.
Many people in western Japan reported this rare sight on social media. NHK Public Television stated that its cameras located in Aichi Prefecture, Mie Prefecture and other areas captured fireballs in the southern sky.
According to the “Asahi Shimbun” report, a camera at Nagoya Port showed that the light emitted by the meteor was as bright as it was when it approached the earth.
Some experts say that small fragments of the meteorite may have reached the ground.
Takeshi Inoue, curator of the Akashi Planetarium, told Kyodo News: “We believe that the last light is as bright as the full moon.”
In the early hours of Sunday morning, the fireball only appeared for a few seconds, but it was captured by a camera owned by NHK-the camera usually captures seismic activity, not a light show of aliens.
A Twitter user who saw the fireball said: “The sky suddenly brightens. I feel very strange because it can’t be lightning.” “I feel the power of the universe!”
“Is that a fireball? I thought it was the end of the world…” Another person tweeted, a video of a shooting star captured while driving.
In July, an equally bright meteor was found over Tokyo, which was later confirmed to be a meteor, and fragments were found in neighboring Chiba Prefecture
