ObservaçõesI'm not sure as to the makeup of the object, but I believe it's possible that this object could have originated due to its angle of attack, relative time of entry, and the fact that it broke apart into two primary pieces upon entry. I would need to have video of the event to make a calculation of entry velocity but considering that it entered almost directly downwards, it was moving considerably slower than Earth's velocity at the time of entry and it is possible that this object is a trans-neptunian object that was kicked out of the kuiper belt into a highly elliptical orbit by Neptune. Alternatively, the object could be a venus-crossing or mercury-crossing asteroid due to its possibly metallic/semi-metallic interior.

ObservaçõesThe smoke trail was similar to that of an airliner. There was no residual glowing seen after the fireball but for a fraction of a second.
Explosão no final
ObservaçõesAs the object entered the atmosphere, it quickly brightened and broke apart into two main fragments with a few small fragments in the vicinity.
ObservaçõesThe two main fragments broke apart during the flash, before which there were small amounts of glowing material briefly flaking off of the object before the main flash. The two cores broke in such a way so that one broke in a downwards direction towards the surface and slightly to my left, and the second broke upwards and slightly to my right, almost as if the object previously was comprised of two metallic or semi-metallic lobes with a rocky exterior.
