In the early down of July 11, 2018 at 00:56:01, information pointed to several sightings of a fireball in the skies of the inland of São Paulo. We soon began a search on BRAMON records in the southeast. With our high density coverage of the region, we could quickly find the fireball registered in five cameras affiliated with BRAMON.
