A fireball seen blazing across the sky in northern Bangkok has been captured on film.

A dash cam captured the moment the fireball, thought to be a meteor, was seen over the Thai capital on Monday morning.

The film shows a bright ball of flames move across the sky for a few seconds like a shooting star.

Locals took to social media to report sightings of the mystery blaze and post video (skip to 27 seconds).

There has been no official confirmation of what caused the fireball.

However, local media reported that the Bangkok Planetarium said there had been no reports of a meteorite landing.

The Bangkok Post also said the fireball had been seen in other parts of the country.

The Thai government has reportedly not commented on the sightings.

In 2013, dash cams in cars in Russia caught the moment a meteorite spectacularly struck about 1500 kilometres east of Moscow, leaving about 1200 people injured and damaging several thousand buildings.
