The video of this surprising incident went viral on TV and social media. Actually, the fire spheres that had rained here were meteorite rains, that continued for some time.

According to media reports, these shells were seen in Aichi, Me and other places in the southern sky. As a meteorite approaches Nagoya in a camera at Nagoya Port, it starts shining like a moon. Some experts said that some pieces of it were also seen falling on the ground.
On seeing this incident, some people got excited by the light, so many people were also afraid of these explosions. No one understood at first how the day happened at night. Earlier, a similar falling star was seen in Tokyo in July. Later parts of it were also seen in Sheeba.
What are meteorites
When asteroids break down for some reason, a small piece of them separates from them, these are called meteorites. When these meteorites pass near the earth, due to exposure to the atmosphere, they burn up immediately and we are seen as a circle of fire, as a star breaks. But in reality these are not stars.
