According to the media, the meteorite impact could be seen from Malatya, Erzurum, Elazig, Gaziantep, and surrounding provinces. According to eyewitnesses, at the moment of impact, the glow of the cosmic body illuminated the night streets.

"At the moment of the meteorite's fall, it broke into pieces, and the sky lit up with blue light," the media writes.
