In TABOACAL at SANTO ANTONIO DE JESUS rural area, PAULINA DE JESUS saw a huge fire ball crossing the sky. "After falling, the fire ascended about 30m into the sky" and burned a great forest area in the Atlantic Forest.

The meteorite left five holes in the land of about 2 meters in diameter.

The ANTARES Observatory, in the nearby the city of FEIRA DE SANTANA will conduct an investigation.
