Three bright meteors recorded over Spain

SMART framework project detected and recorded three bright meteors over Spain on December 5, 2018.

Their all-sky cameras registered the objects at 01:51 UTC, 03:33 and 05:41 UTC over the provinces of Valladolid, Granada, Jaén and Albacete. 

They were generated by three rocks from three different comets that hit Earth's atmosphere at a speed of 150 000 and 200 000 km/h.

The fireballs were recorded in the framework of the SMART project (University of Huelva) from the meteor-observing stations located at La Hita (Toledo), Calar Alto (Almeria), La Sagra (Granada), Sierra Nevada (Granada) and Sevilla.
