This dash cam video was captured in Yamanashi Prefecture at the exact moment the meteor streaked through the night sky.

This video footage of the fireball was taken in Yokohoma City, Kanagawa Prefecture.

They were hundreds reporting a bright light and the visible plume it left as it streaked down from the sky.

The light of the almost full moon brightened the meteor plume which began to dissipate about ten minutes after the sky event.

Witnesses describe the bolide as a greenish light which looked like a soccer ball hurtling across the sky.

The flying ball of fire was observed over a wide area of 130 kilometres between Yokohama and Yamanashi Prefecture.
