Lakewood Scoop received a video with a video camera of the fireball seen in New Jersey earlier in November.

Public television NHK reported that its cameras in the central prefectures of Aichi, Mie and elsewhere captured the fireball in the southern sky.

A camera at the port of Nagoya showed the meteor, which shone as brightly as a full moon as it approached Earth, the Asahi newspaper reported.

Some experts say that small fragments of the meteorite may have reached the ground.
