Just came across some breaking news here in Brazil. I'm new here so I can't post new threads and I suppose I don't need a new thread for this anyway.
Cutting to the chase;
2 hours ago, reports about a "green fireball" falling from the sky just hit the news here. Lot's of reports are coming from the country's Northeast.
I'm liking a news article
This is a map with the region where pepople saw the allegedly meteorite;
A little translation now;
People saw a green fireball falling slowly from the sky. According to the article, the witness says it caused a huge flash in the sky and the object
appeared to be big.
Astronomers from national agencies says no meteor or any "traceable" object was reported by any instruments, so, at least for now, the official theory
is an exotic optical illusion in the clouds.
There are other reports (from people more close to the sea) in this article
According to this one the massive sighting was also followed by a huge boom and some of the witness say they saw the allegedly meteorite falling into
the the ocean.
I'm going to keep looking for more news. Any doubts about the Portuguese texts just ask me. And sorry about any grammar mistakes here.
