Fireball lights up sky: Thailand Fireball, There was something in the skies over Bangkok — and it wasn’t smog.

A 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.

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.
