The video shows a fireball falling from the sky. as it hides behind the clouds for a very brief moment, it bursts into a blinding light, making the whole sky green.

As is usually the case, a strange phenomenon in the sky prompts minds to think of surreal assumptions. The video has sparked multiple theories and speculations about the nature of the object. Some thought it was intergalactic debris, and some assumed it was rocket debris. Many thought it was an alien trick, while other users were certain that a UFO had been spotted in the sky.
Putting wild theories to rest, Dr Hasan Ali Dal, associate director of the Aegean University Observatory, said the unusual green “fireball” is in fact a meteor. Meteors typically light up, oozing bright colors as they begin to burn as they enter Earth’s atmosphere.
The meteor is part of the Perseid meteor shower, which was scheduled to begin on July 26. The rain has been spotted by NASA, and is thought to peak around August 11, when nearly 50 meteors can be spotted in an hour, making the Perseids one of the biggest meteor showers of the year.
