Argentina: A Fireball Over San Juan?

A reader of Diario de Cuyo saw a strange, bright light crossing the skies at hig speed. The photos were taken from a car at the intersection of Ig. de la Roza and San Miguel avenues.

18:09 hrs. San Juan, 7 November - "That's not a plane. What is it?" wondered Daniela Pérez as she drove in her car along with her family, stopping at the light on Ignacio de la Roza and San Miguel avenues only minutes before 19:30 hours.

Using a handy cellphone, she photgraphed the fireball-like object that crossed the skies of San Juan at high speed - an object whose appearance suggested having little connection with an airplane.

In spite of the reddish hue of the sky, the object left a wake in its path that was clearly visible. The object was also seen by other motorists who looked at the heavens in surprise.
