It’s 2020, and nothing fazes people anymore. Almost no one bat an eyelid when the Pentagon released official footage of possible UFO sightings. Nevertheless, interplanetary exchanges are always fun to watch.
The latest galactical marvel was spotted and captured a few days ago in Tokyo, Japan, where residents witnessed a massive fireball entering the Earth’s atmosphere and exploding with a loud bang at 2.30am local time.
The space debris—described to be a “particularly bright meteor” that was “brighter than the full moon”—might have gone unnoticed by those who were already asleep, but according to The Japan Times and BGR, it went out with a thunderous sonic boom that would undoubtedly stir some of them awake.
Someone managed to record the scene, and noted in the video’s description, “I’m surprised that the meteor [created] a halo.”
Thankfully, no one reported serious damage. You can catch the incredible sight in the 13-second clip below.
