Eye-Witness Report:
I saw just now, at 23 hrs something strange across the skies. A foreign object, whose shape could not identify. It had speed like that of a plane, but had a long flaming tail in the opposite direction of its trajectory... A man says he is facing the convent and the meteorite was in the direction of the convent He also asserts that it is in the sky for more than 40 seconds... A woman says that the comet was coming in from the southwest direction... A friend claims to have seen the impact, as it fell near the cane fields...
