URGENTE - Brilhante meteoro cruza céu da Argentina e foi visto até do sul do Brasil
Um meteoro muito brilhante e de longa duração foi avistado nessa noite de 30 de Julho, por volta das 21:00 horas (horário local) sobre a Argentina, em províncias como Entre Rios e Buenos Aires (relativamente próximas à fronteira com Brasil e Uruguai).

O meteoro apresentava coloração predominante verde e um brilho muito forte. Além disso, ele teve grande duração, o que fez com que chamasse a atenção de muitas pessoas, dando tempo para elas filmarem o evento. O mesmo meteoro foi avistado também no Uruguai e em cidades do sul do Brasil como, por exemplo, Taquara, no estado do Rio Grande do Sul.

Ainda há poucas informações sobre o evento, e nas redes sociais o evento está sendo noticiado juntamente da ‪ CieloVerde‬. Contudo, algumas informações e hipóteses já podem ser destacadas:

- Apesar da longa duração do evento, é pouco provável que se trate de uma reentrada de lixo espacial, apesar de que a hipótese ainda está sendo estudada avaliando-se as reentradas esperadas para o local e o horário;

- Caso se confirme ser mesmo um meteoro (o que é muito provável que aconteça), provavelmente trate-se de um material de baixa velocidade ou que entrou com pequena angulação em relação ao solo (ou até ambos os casos, sendo considerado a possibilidade de se tratar de um Earthgazer);

- Não há confirmação da trajetória, mas dados preliminares indicam que provavelmente ele se deslocava de noroeste para sudeste, o que levanta a possibilidade de que ele possa ter se dirigido para o mar;

- Pela magnitude do evento é praticamente descartada qualquer relação com qualquer chuva de meteoros ativa no momento, tratando-se de um meteoro esporádico.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION
URGENT - Bright meteor crosses the sky of Argentina and was seen to the south of Brazil # Links # Videos
A very bright meteor, long-term was seen that night of 30 July, around 21:00 hours (local time) on Argentina, as in provinces Entre Rios and Buenos Aires (relatively close to the border with Brazil and Uruguay) .

The meteor had predominantly green color and a strong shine. In addition, he had great length, which meant to call the attention of many people, allowing time for them filming the event. The same meteor was also seen in Uruguay and in cities in southern Brazil, for example, Taquara, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul.

There is still little information about the event, and social networks the event is being reported along the # Cielo verde. However, some information and assumptions can already be highlighted:

- Despite the long duration of the event, it is unlikely that it is a space junk re-entry, although the case is still being studied by evaluating the expected re-entry to the site and the time;

- If confirmed even be a meteor (which is very likely to happen), probably treat yourself to a low speed material or which came with small angle relative to the ground (or even both cases, being considered the possibility of it is a Earthgazer);

- There is no confirmation of the path, but preliminary data indicate that probably he moved northwest to southeast, which raises the possibility that he may have been directed to the sea;

- By the magnitude of the event is virtually ruled out any relationship with any active meteor shower of the time, in the case of a sporadic meteor.

30JUL2015 I have just received the below email via my astronomy website from someone
living on the Gold Coast, Australia. Unfortunately, there is no information about what direction the daughter was looking or when she saw the object. I am emailing the list on the off chance that a re-entry has occurred today over this part of Australia. Thanks in advance. Regards, Paul Floyd. www.nightskyonline.info
"... My daughter called to tell me that she's seen a large bright object with what she described as a broken tail arcing down the sky this evening (Thurs 30th Jul). She is not at all into astronomical events so didn't know what to make of it, but she sees enough planes to know it wasn't that. She lives in Burleigh. ..."

What caused the mystery of the Dark Day?
BBC
http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-18097177

New England's Dark Day
Wikipedia
..."The earliest report of the darkness came from Rupert, New York, where the sun was already obscured at sunrise. Professor Samuel Williams observed from Cambridge, Massachusetts, "This extraordinary darkness came on between the hours of 10 and 11 am and continued till the middle of the next night."[4] Reverend Ebenezer Parkham, of Westborough, Massachusetts, reported peak obscurity to occur "by 12", but did not record the time when the obscuration first arrived.

At Harvard College, the obscuration was reported to arrive at 10:30 am, peaking at 12:45 pm, and abating by 1:10 pm, but a heavy overcast remained for the rest of the day. The obscuration was reported to have reached Barnstable, Massachusetts, by 2:00 pm, with peak obscurity reported to have occurred at 5:30 pm.[3]

At 2:00 pm, in Ipswich, Massachusetts, roosters crowed, woodcocks whistled, and frogs peeped as if darkness had fallen. A witness reported that a strong sooty smell prevailed in the atmosphere, and that rain water had a light film over it that was made up of particles of burnt leaves and ash.[5] Contemporary reports also indicated ash and cinders fell on parts of New Hampshire to a depth of six inches.[6]"..MORE -

25JUL2015 Mike Jackson, TN, USA 22:41, CST Maybe 2 second at the most As I was facing North, it traveled diagonally down and to the left from up-right Green, no sound It didn't light up the sky. It was probably as bright as the moon from its point, though since it wasn't as big it didn't light up the surrounding area like the moon does. Couldn't tell It was bright and large for a meteorite whatever it was. It wasn't very high in the sky, maybe 20-30 degrees from the ground. The green was very bright and clear.

25JUL2015 Brian Goodzey South Bend, Indiana, USA 23:35 Just about 3 seconds Looking south from top left to bottom right of view then burned out Yellow in color then blue when burning out. Didn't hear anything. About as bright as a weak firework No fragmentation. It wasn't too far away.

25JUL2015 Dawn Everton, Arkansas 22:35 pm CST approx. 3 seconds looking to the east it was traveling towards the north An orange ball of light arching downwards which turmed green before disappearing/going out very bright, but didn't light up the sky not that I could tell I didnt see where it started in the sky, I just happened to look up at the right moment. husband was looking at his phone and saw it in his peripheral vision

25JUL2015 Abby Portage Indiana United States 2230 pm About 5 seconds Direction of travel was from east to west, I was facing south. Mostly white in color, with some red. I saw flashing, no sound. A little brighter than the moon I did not see any parts falling I walked out back, and looked straight up, noticed the very bright flash of white and red followed by a bright white tail. Then the head of the meteor looked like it exploded, and that is when I saw the flash. It was amazing! Right place at the right time

Asteroids and Meteors Incoming July 2015
ALERT- Increased Meteor Activity! Expect some spectacular bolides,  fireballs, and meteors this month and especially large ones 3-5 days before and following the passing of  4 small mountain-sized NEO asteroids that will safely pass this month. Dates to watch especially are July 13- 27 as the four small mountains pass through the neighborhood. An especially interesting period will be the July 21-27 when a 1.0-2.3 km diameter asteroid with an LD of 18.8 will pass safely on 25 July but may have unknown accompanying debris that may provide meteor activity seen.
