A massive fireball lit up the sky over Japan on June 18, 2016.
The bright meteor hurtling towards Earth was visible for several seconds as it streaked from the Kanto and Tohoku regions of Japan between 10:50 p.m. and 11:00 p.m.
This dash cam video was captured in Yamanashi Prefecture at the exact moment the meteor streaked through the night sky.

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.
Although officials haven’t make any announcements yet, this is clearly a meteor fireball.
On June 2, 2016, a large fireball also left a weird trail in the sky of Arizona.
