January 21st – On the evening of the 20th local time, a huge turquoise fireball crossed over Japan.
Its brightness was close to the upper string moon and flew very fast.
Due to the sunny weather that night, this astronomical phenomenon was observed in many parts of Japan.
According to a report by Japan’s Asahi Shimbun on the 21st, the Japanese meteor observation website
Sonotaco Network released a report that the fireball flew over Yamanashi Prefecture from south to north
burning at a higher altitude, and the possibility of falling to the ground as a meteorite is very low.
In July 2020, there were giant fireballs over Kanto, some of which fell to the territory of Xizhino City
Chiba Prefecture and were named “Xizhino Meteorite”.
