In the videos of the event, a bright white object can be observed falling towards our planet and illuminate, at least for a few moments, the clouds in the night sky with an intense light green color, before continuing its journey towards the earth's surface.
According to eyewitnesses from the areas near the city of Bishkek, the capital of the country, the glare caused by the alleged meteorite was so intense that the sky lit up as if it were daytime.
