Wednesday night’s spectacular fireball seen across south Spain: On 15 September 2021, at 22:25 local time (equivalent to 20:25 universal time), a rock (a meteoroid) from an asteroid impacted the atmosphere at about 76.000 km/h over the south of Spain. The high temperature reached during its atmospheric entry gave rise to a fireball that began at a height of around 91 km over the province of Badajoz. The fireball moved northwest and ended at a height of about 22 km above the same province. The preliminary analysis of this event shows that the rock was not fully destroyed: a small part of the object could survive and reach the ground as a meteorite.
The event was recorded in the framework of the SMART project, operated by the Southwestern Europe Meteor Network (SWEMN), from the meteor-observing stations located at the astronomical observatories of Calar Alto (Almería), Sierra Nevada (Granada), La Sagra, La Hita, and Sevilla.
