Blazing meteor believed to be mysterious light seen in northwestern China

A suspected low-flying meteor lit up the sky in northwestern China’s Yushu City on December 23.

The video shows a bright fireball streaking across and lighting up the dark sky.

According to reports, the fireball was probably a bolide, an extremely bright meteor, and it may have dropped several meteorite fragments somewhere in the area.

The China Earthquake Networks later confirmed that it was a ‘Bolide’ which is a very bright meteor. However, more details are awaited regarding what took place. 

According to NASA’s Fireball and Bolide Data provided by JPL’s CNEOS also detected the fireball impact in the region. 

Earlier this month, a similar event was witnessed in Japan and videos of the fireball lighting up skies began to circulate widely online.
