This video shows a superb bolide recorded over Spain on April 14, at 2:35 local time (equivalent to 0:35 universal time). It was brighter than the full Moon. The fireball was observed by several 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 65,000 km/h. The fireball overflew the provinces of Málaga, Granada, and Jaén (Spain). It began at an altitude of about 90 km over the locality of Sedella (province of Málaga), moved northeast, crossed the province of Granada, and ended at a height of around 25 km over the locality of Solera (province of Jaén).

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).
