- A Japanese teen captured eerie footage of meteorite blazing through the sky at the same time an earthquake hit
- Many who saw the meteorite believed that it was a bad omen because it appeared in the sky at the same time as the earthquake and tsunami
- A 7.3 magnitude earthquake hit Japan and caused a tsunami that scared people because they thought the events of 2011 might repeat itself
A Japanese teenager captured the moment a meteorite was seen blazing across the sky above Japan right after it was hit by an earthquake.
The teenager only known Asuka has uploaded the video of the meteorite crossing the sky and wrote the caption: "A movie I took while preparing to die."
He later added: “Thought that it was a meteorite because there was an earthquake earlier. It is not a meteorite."
Many took the meteorite as a sign of something evil or maybe it was the cause of the earthquake in the first place.
A man in India was struck down by a meteorite approximately at the same time.
A 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck Japan and a Tsunami warning had been issued. People were worried that the waters might flood the nuclear power plants at Fukushima and the incidents of 2011 might repeat when a Tsunami caused the Fukushima power plant to go awry and spill colossal amounts of radiation into the sea and air.
A warning was issued to all citizens that read: "Damage due to tsunami waves is expected. Evacuate immediately from coastal regions and riverside areas to a safer place such as high ground or an evacuation building.”
