Perhaps a slightly misleading title as the article goes on to state that it's fairly likely to have been caused by a meteor shower. Fairly stunning footage anyway, despite the sensationalist title.

A mysterious flash of light lit up the sky in northern Brazil, turning the darkness a whole host of colours late in the evening

This is the moment a mysterious flash of light turned night into day in northern Brazil.

Captured on camera at around 10.20pm last night, an unidentified object can be seen throwing out bursts of intense blue, pink, purple and red light.

The phenomenon, in Brazil's Recife region, saw the night's sky illuminated brightly for a number of seconds, before residents were plunged into darkness once again.




Brazilian media said some had compared the sight to the sun rising, while others believed it had been a flash of lightning.

But experts believe the spectacular show was more likely to have been caused by a meteor falling from a meteor shower.

Lighting pattern is consistent with a bolide. That'd be my guess.

Power transformer or sub station blowing is all.

It was a really, really big one. Completely eclipsed the Sun.

Actually, it's taken straight from the article.

Looks like an ammunitions factory or storage facility just over the viewable horizon is exploding. If the news media in Brazil is controlled by the government, there wouldn't be reporting of this embarrassing event allowed.

Talk about a beautiful light show from whatever that thing is!




So, what was it? The colors reminded some of an electrical transformer explosion but it was too large to be that and there were no reports of any noise. The Astronomical Society of Recife (SAR) says the height and high brightness of the flash indicates a meteor or bolide.
