Lenticular 'fireball' cloud over Teixeira de Freitas, Brazil
In the second week of August, South America experienced colossal movements of water, where the Brazil / Uruguay side ocean levels receded as much as 30 meters, while on the Chile side waves of 5-7 meters magically appeared out of nowhere.
