Very bright fireball over Almeria, Spain


A very bright fireball was recorded by Calar Alto Observatory (CAHA) in Almeria, Spain at 23:29 UTC on June 5, 2021.

Unfortunately, most of Spain was completely covered by clouds and no other station of the other observatories could detect this object, CAHA said in a news release.

"Due to this, its triangulation has been impossible and we have not been able to gather more information on this phenomenon."

However, the Calar Alto Observatory was enjoying a clear and clean sky and one of the external surveillance cameras operated in this observatory was able to record this impressive fireball.
