The meteor’s descent caused panic among the inhabitants of the prefecture, the police reported that it alarmed people who called the police stations asking about the “blue flash in the sky.”

The incident also caused reaction online. “A meteor fell,” one wrote. Another said, “What looked like a shooting star glowed very brightly before it disappeared,” Japan Times reported.

A 22-year-old man who filmed the object while driving through the Saitama town of Namegawa said, “I saw a very bright light, which at the end disappeared in a flash.”
