The fireball that streaked across the sky over southern Japan may have come from a Chinese missile.

The National Astronomical Observatory of Japan announced that it observed the incident at 23:00 local time.

The observatory’s specialists also said that the movement suggests that it is not a meteorite and “looks exactly like the entry into the atmosphere of some debris from a rocket”, possibly from a Chinese launch in November.

The experts calculated the trajectory and determined that the space junk will land in the sea and does not pose a danger to the inhabitants.
