Photo: Meteor Impact in Argentina?

Information continues to come in on the possible meteor impact in Argentina. The following is from

[...] The Monte Grande explosion, which caused dozens of families in this Buenos Aires community to wake up, and caused a woman's death, was not caused by a gas cylinder explosion, as confirmed by initial investigations performed by the fire department.

"It was shown that there was no explosion resulting from a gas cylinder," stated Guillermo PĂ©rez, the head of the fire department.

Only minutes before the explosion, a local resident took a photo of a burning object that fell from the night sky. The image shows a spherical object with a tail similar to that of a comet. Testimony by local residents suggests that this could be the "fireball" that they saw falling on the destroyed homes.
