Video of a mysterious fireball shooting across the sky has people across the world baffled.

The phenomenon was captured Monday on dash-cam footage in Bangkok, and created a minor panic as authorities mistook the fireball for a plane crash.

Saran Poshyachina, the deputy director of the National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand, told the Bangkok Post that the fire in the sky was probably a meteorite landing. But it could also just have been space junk.

Pay attention to the top right of the screen around the 30 second mark to view the mysterious phenomenon.

Students protesting the military coup in Thailand have adopted Katniss' 3-fingered salute from Hunger Games, and "The Capitol" is not happy.

The military-controlled government has banned the gesture, and a movie chain has cancelled all screenings of the latest film "Mockingjay" as a result of the protests and, reportedly, pressure from the police.

Five students were arrested at a speech this week by Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-O-Cha (Thailand's President Snow), wearing shirts that read "Don't Want a Coup."

Chan-O-Cha is denying any involvement in the screening cancellations. He also says he isn't phased by the salute, but warns them all - in a very creepy Snow-like fashion - that this might "jeopardize their futures."

Maybe the government should spend more time watching the movies themselves to learn that trying to silence the people is probably not going to end very well for them.
