An intense fireball flew over the provinces of Cáceres and Ávila in the early hours of April 12, at 5.06 local Spanish peninsular hours. Your step has been recorded on video.
A rock coming from an asteroid at a speed of about 65,000 kilometers per hour entered the Earth's atmosphere. The event began at an altitude of about 91 kilometers over the north of the province of Cáceres, from where it continued in a northeasterly direction to finish an altitude of about 35 kilometers over the province of Ávila.
The video of this fireball has been broadcasted on YouTube by Meteors. This is one of the dissemination channels of the WWW.METEOROIDES.NET portal, which is responsible for the professor of the University of Huelva José María Madiedo.
Due to its great luminosity, the fireball could be seen from more than 400 kilometers away. The event has been registered by SMART project detectors (University of Huelva). These detectors operate within the framework of the Wind and Meteor Network of Southwest Europe (SWEMN) from the astronomical observatories of La Hita (Toledo) and Seville.
