A huge fireball disintegrated over Bangkok, Thailand during the morning rush hour at 8.45 am.
The giant fireball fell vertically before exploding in the sky. The daytime meteor strike was caught by dash cams from people driving to work.
There was no sound of explosion when it fell on earth and disappeared in Bangkok sky. However, residents about 200 kilometres away from Bangkok – Sisawat district of Kanchanaburi province – reported a thunderous explosion just after the fireball explosion.
Another person in Kanchanaburi reported hearing two explosions.
The fireball was so bright it was seen during daytime. There are also reports of green and orange colours when it fell down vertically from the sky.
