Video: Meteor burns its way through sky over wide part of Japan

A brightly burning meteor was observed falling from the sky in wide areas of Japan, gaining attention on television and social media.

The meteor gleamed strongly as it quickly descended through the Earth’s atmosphere on Sunday.

Many people in western Japan announced on social media seeing the rare sight.

NHK public television said its cameras in the central prefectures of Aichi, Mie and elsewhere captured the fireball in the southern sky.

A camera at Nagoya port showed the meteor shining as brightly as a full moon as it neared the Earth, the Asahi newspaper reported.

Some experts said small fragments of the meteorite might have reached the ground.
