Many Japanese people witnessed an impressive heavenly spectacle last Sunday. At 1:34 am, large areas of Japan were illuminated by a veritable fireball.
A meteor has indeed crossed the sky of a part of Japan, producing a particularly powerful luminous burst. Striking images were filmed by the cameras of NHK, a public television station, in the regions of Mie and Aichi, located in the center of the country.
An NHK reporter, who was in the town of Matsuyama, explained that the light was so balancing that it could be seen through the curtains. According to some testimonies gathered on the spot, this meteor even produced a rumble as it entered the atmosphere.
