The Astronomical Society of the Caribbean (SAC) indicated that when comparing the images obtained by cameras educational institution, was determined that the meteor entered the skies over the area of ​​Aguada, PR and soon fell into the sea just north of Camuy , PR. The analysis included a triangulation of images, which agreed with several interviews with witnesses who sighted the impressive meteor, explained the SAC.

The educational institution noted that as seen from the perspective of San Juan and the metropolitan area, the meteor was seen looking toward the west (where the Sun sets) moving from west to north (left to right.) As confirmed by testimonies and images captured from San Juan by the SAC.

However, other cameras located in the western part of the island revealed that the storm began to penetrate the atmosphere being right on Aguada, and fell further north in Camuy, Puerto Rico.
