War Of The Worlds! Mysterious Fireball Caught On Camera In Thailand

People in Thailand were left stunned on Monday after a mystery fireball streaked through clear blue daytime skies. The phenomena also got captured on camera and quickly lit up social media.
The fireball -- thought to be an asteroid -- was seen over the Thai capital on Tuesday during the morning rush hour and the images were widely shared on social media.
Footage from one Bangkok dashboard car camera captured a fireball followed by a brilliant white flash, that was also seen across the country.
"It was the middle of a blue sky day and there was a quick, bright light coming down," said Porjai Jaturongkhakun whose dashcam recorded the scene as he drove to work.
"I usually see shooting stars at night but I have never seen one in the day before," the 30-year-old satellite engineer told AFP.
Porjai was one of a number of Thais who managed to capture the dramatic incident on their car dashboard cameras -- with such footage and witness accounts quickly going viral on social media.
The Institute of Astronomical Research of Thailand reported the object was from space and turned into a fireball as it plummeted towards earth. The object burned up about 100 kilometres above the ground.
Personnel at Bangkok's planetarium said the object could have been a burning balloon or space junk, according to the Bangkok Post newspaper.
There were no reports of downed or missing aircraft in the area at the time.
"It was a meteor for sure, I am confident, because it was fast and very bright", Voravit Tanvuttibundit, adviser to the National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand told AFP on Monday.
In a country imbued with superstition, many took the meteor strike as an ill omen.
"It was a bad sign showing the country and the government is in chaos," Facebook user Dilok Jantaradilok wrote.
What we often call "falling stars" are actually tiny bits of space rock that smash into the atmosphere at about 60 kilometres per second, burning up in flashes of light.
