While some believe it could be a meteor shower, other affirm the sighting was too slow to be one. "After the flash in the sky, a roar, a scare and many doubts lurking Santa Rita do Pardo, fireballs were seen in this [madrugada]," stated an alleged eyewitness account.
According to this account, an object fell into the backyard of farmer Farcisco Souza Danta's backyard shortly after the loud noises.
