      Maybe some of you are aware of the meteorite which fell in Brazil this year. Here is a fine story with video

      "In the dust of July, 19th, 2010, around 17:30 PM, a series of events would change the routine life of a small city within the Rio de Janeiro state of Brazil, located near the border of Rio de Janeiro and Espirito Santo states.

      The small city of Varre-Sai would become known as the Meteorite City all over the country. The last event of this kind in Brazil happened around 19 years ago in Campos Sale city in CearĂ¡ state.

      A bolibe or meteor that, according to some witnesses, was traveling from North to South could be seen from different states in Brazil such as Natal, Minas Gerais, Rio Grande do Norte and Rio de Janeiro. In the city of Linhares, Espirito Santo state, a video recorded the event."
