A man filming himself with his selfie stick probably thought he’d captured the UFO sighting of a lifetime when a white object shot across the sky behind him.
Charnchai Jardpimai, in Phitsanulok province, uploaded the footage of the mysterious object, which looked like a shooting star, on his YouTube channel on Saturday.
After a minute of filming, Charnchai spots the object streaking across the sky and spins the camera around to capture it.
“What is that?” he yells. “Is that fire? Is that a falling star? A jet? Shit! Why is it taking so long?”
But sadly for us conspiracy theorists, the National Astronomical Research Institute confirmed the white “beam” of light shooting across the sky was just a bit of falling debris from a Russian rocket that had launched in December.
The debris was expected to fall safely into the Pacific Ocean, it added.
Rocket debris….or mysterious alien object from outer space?
