A very bright fireball streaked through the night sky over Venezuela around 23:20 UTC on Saturday, February 9, 2019 around 23:20 UTC (19:20 local time). The event lasted up to 5 seconds.

Witnesses said the meteor was seen over Venezuela, Valencia, Victoria and Caracas.

It's very likely some pieces of the meteor survived atmospheric entry and ended in the ocean or possibly over land. 

The American Meteor Society (AMS) received only 1 report about this event. If you witnessed it, please fill out their form so we can learn more about it.

AMS notes some of the images and videos circulating social media networks are about event that took place last December in Mexico.

The hole world should know that when you see the STARS that are called in the bible ( the host of heaven or Angels falling down to the EARTH like rocks and fire then that means that the music must STOP! FOR IT READS AT ISAIAH 24:21 THAT in our DAY the LORD will Punish the host of heaven who are in heaven ( Angels) at the same time as he is also Punishing all of the kings of the earth. Thus even moor disasterdisasters to come! THIS IS Because the world hase no more shame for what they do. You must know that your feelings of shame is just like a Pease offering to GOD.
