1, 2, 3, 4… up to 9 parallel (and maybe 10) meteors appears nearly simultaneously over Brazil on June 26! An exceptional event that was recorded by a BRAMON video station in Maranhão, Brazil. A must-see video!

Simultaneous meteors sometimes appears, as an effect of fragmentation of a meteoroid before entering the Earth atmosphere. But what recorded the BRAMON (BRAzilian Meteor Observing Network) video station managed by Edgar Merizio in São José do Ribamar, Maranhão, Brazil is somewhat dramatic. Up to 9 meteors appearing within one second!

More information on BRAMON website regarding this event, and the calculated trajectories.

Special thanks to Marcelo Zurita who provided us the information.
