    News published today in Brazilian newspapers reported that a circular
    metalic object fell on 22/02/2012 at 09:00 GMT in a village in the state of
    Maranhão (the coordinates of the village are Lat: -3.654429 / Long:
    -43.109200). The object fell six meters of a residence.
    "I heard the noise,trembled even the leg. I look at what it was. I thought
    it was a plane that had fallen, or an earthquake"  said one witness, the
    object broke some trees during the fall.
    Certainly it is a piece of satellite, it´s possibile identify the object
     that reenter in the region ?
