This amazing fireball overflew the Mediterranean Sea on 18 Nov. 2016 at 22:31 UT (23:31 local time). The event was produced by a meteoroid that hit the atmosphere at about 72000 km/h. The bolide began at an altitude of about 80 km above the sea level and ended at a height of around 60 km above the sea. The fireball was recorded in the framework of the SMART Project from the astronomical observatories of Calar Alto (Almerķa, Spain) and La Sagra (Granada, Spain).
