A bright meteor was observed at 00:54 UTC on September 13 over Bosnia and Herzegovina and recorded by cameras of BiH meteor network run by Astronomical Society Orion and Federal Hydrometeorological Institute from Sarajevo.
Mohammed Muminović from Astronomical Society Orion claims this was the brightest meteor out of 14 792 meteors they recorded during the past two years.
The fireball could be seen for over six seconds before it broke down into five pieces.
There is a strong possibility that parts of this celestial body fell north of Gradačac, on the border with Croatia.
Experts from AS Orion and Federal Hydrometeorological Institute are still waiting for eyewitness reports, especially from Posavina because it would help locate the possible crash site.
The phenomenon was registered by network cameras in Sarajevo, Gradačac and Pelješac (BiH; Croatia).
