'Space Junk' Captured On Video Hurtling Into Bangkok Street

Another day, another interesting dash cam video.

This time it appears to show a very fast streak of light hurtling to the ground near a busy street in Bangkok, Thailand.

The bizarre happening was captured at 8.40am local time on Monday.

And it's not the only video captured of the phenomenon.

And another angle appears to show the same streak of light.

Saran Poshyachina, of the National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand, said the fireball could be a meteorite landing, according to the Bangkok Post.

But the publication also reported an identified fall of 'space junk' was expected around the time of the video.

Space junk Flock 1B-11 object number 40459U was thought to be close to atmosphere and due to burn through on Monday.

Millions of pieces of space junk exist above Earth, with thousands entering the atmosphere each year.
