JULY 2006: Hovering coconut
We were at Itapuã Beach, not far from the city of Salvador. Suddenly, we witnessed a miracle, a natural wonder. We rubbed our eyes. That cannot be true! We stared at the ocean, where we saw a green coconut hovering above the rolling waves. According to my high-school knowledge of physics and biology, this is absolutely impossible. A coconut is much heavier than air and should plunge in the ocean. We didn’t notice any invisible thread, there was no flying balloon linked to the coconut. What was going on? To prove that we really have seen the floating coconut, and that this observation was not due to drinking a lot of alcohol, I took this picture.
