This video shows a bolide recorded on January 30, at 23:17 local time (equivalent to 22:17 universal time). The fireball was observed by a wide number of casual eyewitnesses, who reported it on social networks.

The event was generated by a rock (a meteoroid) from an asteroid that hit the atmosphere at about 51,000 km/h. The fireball overflew the provinces of Granada and Almería (Spain). It began at an altitude of about 78 km over Loja (province of Granada), moved southeast, and ended at a height of around 41 km over Ruescas (province of Almería).

This bright meteor was recorded in the framework of the SMART project, operated by the Southwestern Europe Meteor Network (SWEMN) from the meteor-observing stations located at Huelva, La Hita (Toledo), Calar Alto, Sierra Nevada, La Sagra (Granada), and Sevilla. The event has been analyzed by the principal investigator of the SMART project: Dr. Jose M. Madiedo, from the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC).
