A massive fireball, believed to be a meteorite, has fallen on Thailand. Awestruck commuters witnessed the spectacle, describing a green and orange glow, as it took a nosedive toward Earth.

The event took place during the morning rush hour at about 8:45am local time in Bangkok, although the meteor did not make an audible sound as it struck the ground.

The size of the fireball is judged to be quite substantial, as residents of the Sisawat district also described seeing the meteorite. They say they also heard a thunderous explosion, according to Thai PBS.
Some even reported hearing two explosions, so a team of rescue workers was dispatched to where the crash site was assumed to be.
