THAILAND METEOR OR SPACE JUNK
Thailand has been no stranger to meteors entering the atmosphere during 2015 in both daytime and nighttime events. Universal Digest has again received information from Michael Gerlach who is vacationing with family in Adelaide, Australia and is due to return home to Thailand next week. He reported another meteor atmospheric entry over his home country. With this latest occurrence, we have also questioned that this may be the atmospheric reentry of more man-made space junk or spent rocket boosters?
To date, after a comprehensive online search, there has been no mention of this aerial event. The following are some videos taken by onlookers as the object streaked across the sky. The videographers were quite excited in some of these camera sessions.

On December 22, 2015, there was a very similar object sighted entering the earth’s atmosphere from space. Many thought this was a meteor and it was seen over a vast area of the western United States in the early evening. After a few hours it was reported to have been a Russian rocket booster falling to earth. Could this just be another case of space junk or some part(s) of a rocket burning up in the atmosphere?
