This mysterious fireball was filmed shooting though the sky and crashing to earth in Phong Phet, Bangkok.

The dash cam footage shows the burst of light appear in the clear blue sky in broad daylight at around 8.41am local time as stunned motorist watched on in amazement.

The fireball hurtles towards the ground, which has been estimated at a speed of almost 50 miles per second, and glows brightly just before it disappears out of sight.

Poraj Jaturongkhakun uploaded the video to YouTube on September 7th and it has quickly gone viral.

Astronomers claim that it was likely a ‘bolide’ – a meteor that burns up on entry in to the atmosphere.
