The event comes just one month after another very bright fireball exploded over the Chinese city of Jinghong in Yunnan Province.
According to witness reports, that event lasted for about 2 seconds and was followed by two sonic booms, indicating the object penetrated deep into the atmosphere.
Several homes were damaged and numerous fragments recovered by locals in Menghai County.
