The fireball caused some panic northeast of the Thai capital in Nakhon Ratchasima, where local authorities mistook it for a plane crash and dispatched more than 100 rescue workers and firefighters to search for the wreckage.

A local administrator in the Non Tha subdistrict said his villagers alerted him after they saw the fireball streak through the sky.

“They said it looks like plane crash,” Somchai Nacharoen said, prompting him to report the sighting to police.

The search was abandoned two hours later once it became established that the fireball was most likely a meteor. The Second Region Army, which is based in Nakhon Ratchasima, also told reporters there was no report of a plane or helicopter crash in the region.

Meteor measured 4m, weighed 66 tonnes

The mysterious fireball seen above Bangkok early Sept 7 was a 66-tonne asteroid with a diameter of about four metres, according to the National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand.

The large flaming meteor was seen streaking across northern Bangkok about 8.40am, leaving a trail of smoke, with sightings also reported as far as Korat and Kanchanaburi.
