    Today two videos were released, taken at a distance of 570km from one
    another, of a fireball that crossed at least two Brazilian states in the
    night of 20/04.
    The first video was taken at 20:15 (UTC) in Belo Horizonte (Latitude:
    -19.931832 / long: -43.930260) and the second at 21:00 (UTC) in Campos (
    Latitude: -21.754468 / long: -41.324407) ,
    But several reports of the fireball came from other cities like Vila Velha (
    Lat: -20.344787 / long: -40.292051), Bocaiuva (Latitude: -17.128848 / long:
    -43.838242), So Joo del Rey (Latitude: -21.126654 / Long: -44.241745
    ) and other
    localities in the states of Minas Gerais, Espirito Santo and Rio de Janeiro.
    The colleagues of Seesat know if there was any re-entry yesterday over Brazil
    ? If not the meteor researchers will begin a effort to try triangulates it
    checking if had chances that the meteor reached the ground.
