Videos: Suspected meteor shower lightens up night sky in Northern Thailand

Videos showed what experts said was a meteor shower in Thailand last night.

One from the dash cam of a moving vehicle posted by Arin Thamwong and widely shared in Lampang showed a light travelling to earth.

It happens in the early part of the video followed my much conjecture from the vehicle occupants as to whether it was a meteor or a bit of a satellite.

Another video from Mak Make was said to have been made about 8.50 pm last night.

Both videos appear to have incorrect settings.

Experts said it was probably a Tau Herculids meteor shower that appears to originate from the star Tau Herculis. – ThaiRath
