    Meteor Streaks Turn Night Sky Green Over Thailand
    NBC News
    Night suddenly turned to day across Bangkok when a huge fireball appeared in a flash, streaking across the night sky on Sunday Nov. 1, 2015.

    What appeared to be a giant meteor blazed over Thailand Sunday, briefly turning the night sky a dramatic green, NBC News reported. 

    In Bangkok, dash-cam footage captured the fireball flaring overhead at approximately 9 p.m. local time as drivers punched the brakes.

    On Twitter, one observer noted how close the meteor seemed to Earth. "Genuinely speechless," the tweet read. Another described how long it lasted and its "near day brightness."
