Meteor fireball over Spain (June 14)

fireball
This bright bolide was spotted over Spain on June 14, at 0:15 local time (equivalent to 22:15 universal time on June 13). The event was generated by a rock (a meteoroid) from an asteroid that hit the atmosphere at about 88,000 km/h. The fireball overflew Spain. It began at an altitude of about 88 km over the province of Valencia, moved northwest, and ended at a height of around 37 km over the locality of Henarejos (province of Cuenca).

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 Ayora, Huelva, La Hita, CAHA, OSN, La Sagra, 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).

Bright meteor fireball in Puerto Rico 5/28/2022

fireball
It even lit up the clouds...so resplendent was a remarkable bolide (bright meteor) that was seen around 11:45 p.m. on Saturday May 28 from various areas of Puerto Rico.

The Caribbean Astronomy Society (SAC) captured images of the fast meteor and explained that both the witnesses who observed it, as well as one of the SAC's color cameras.

They perceived that the meteor showed a somewhat greenish color, which suggests it was a space rock with metallic content.

The bright meteor was visible looking north and its trajectory moved even further towards the north of the Island, so the possibility that some fragment reached the mainland, since from somewhere to have survived the fragmentation, it must have occurred over the Atlantic Ocean.
