    The explosion occurred shortly after 2 a.m. Monday, destroying two houses, a business and several cars.

    Several neighbors reported seeing a ball of fire fall from the sky right before the explosion.

    Federal and provincial experts aren’t ruling anything out, but NASA has said that a satellite that fell to Earth sometime Saturday landed well clear of South America.

    Provincial justice and security minister Ricardo Casal says experts “are evaluating all theories, from an explosion to something strange that came from the sky.”

    Wait a minute. I thought they didn’t know where the satellite fell?

    I guess they did but don’t want to reveal the place until recovery.
