An alleged “fireball” was seen crossing the sky over Campo Grande early on Wednesday evening (26). This fact generated curiosity about what this “phenomenon” might be in the heights of Avenida Afonso Pena.

The fireball was spotted by our dentist, Luisa Salzidas, 31, around 18:07, as she followed Afonso Pena toward Parque dos Poderes. I mentioned to Campo Grande news She took out her cell phone at that moment to record a voice for her sister-in-law.

“It was a real fireball, so big and so fast. I wonder if it was a comet, a piece of a plane. It was a beautifully scary thing,” described the dentist, who was curious to see if the report had received further reports or was Contains technical information about what happened.

Minutes after seeing the luminous object in the sky of Campo Grande, the dentist called her father, who lives in Berighi, in the interior of São Paulo, who curiously claimed that he had also seen the luminescence in the sky. “My dad must not have just been here, my dad was riding a motorbike and confirmed he also saw the fireball fly through the sky,” Luisa reinforced.

The report contacted the Astronomy Club Carl Sagan, of the Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul, who indicated that it could be a lightning strike, a phenomenon caused by an exceptionally bright meteor, a bright star (a meteorite passing through the Earth’s atmosphere) or an unidentified flying object.

Club members were unable to find any reports of an alleged “fireball” on social media earlier in the evening, but later, the group’s manager, Aurora de Arruda Savalho, reported the arrival of a similar description. “We have received a report of a possible bullish attack towards Sao Paulo. So, yes, it is possible. The problem with these things is that there is no way to accurately predict.”
