A bright fireball was recorded streaking across the night sky over the state of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil at 01:35 UTC on July 8, 2018. The object was visible for several seconds before it disintegrated in a bright flash. It is possible some pieces survived the entry. However, even if something did manage to survive, it's at the bottom of the ocean now.

The fireball was seen by residents of Mossoró, Areia Branca, Assú, Baraúna, Severiano Melo and even cities in Ceará as Icapui and Russas said they had seen the light, according to EXOSS Citizen Science Project.

  1. At Isaiah 24:21 and Isaiah 34:1-4 The true God said that at the time that he comes to punish the Kings of the earth on Earth, that he will also punish all of the host of heaven in heaven who sined against him and that at that time they will fall to the Earth like figs from the tree.” So if you are taking note of the sky’s lately then that means this is the time of pay back for God against the Kings of the earth and the angels they worship, as you can see nune of them can save themselves from falling ” can they? Oops to bad.
