Meteors and Fireballs

Taurids meteor shower produces two new fireballs on November 18th 2015

portadaTwo bright fireballs have been observed in South Spain during last November 18th night. Both of them have been recorded from Calar Alto Observatory, as well as from fireball detection stations working at La Sagra (Granada), La Hita (Toledo) and Sevilla Observatories.



Encke fireball activity continues on November 13th and 14th 2015

portadaMay be not so spectacular as previous nights, but Encke comet fireball activity continues. On November 13th and 14th 2015, two fireballs could be observed from much of Spain and recorded from the Calar Alto Observatory cameras, as well as from La Sagra (Granada), La Hita (Toledo), El Arenosillo (Huelva) and Sevilla observatories.



One more fireball from Encke comet on November 8th 2015

portadaThe fireball activity associated to comet Encke has been very remarkable during last nights. At 21:37 UT of last November 8th, another fireball could be observed from Calar Alto Observatory south surveillance webcam. It was also observed from other stations at La Hita, La Sagra, La Pedriza or Sevilla Observatories.




Another fireball when November 7th 2015 was ending


As we said on previous article, on the nights of November 6th to 7th three fireballs could be observed from different stations. Late on November 7th, a similar object to the last one from previous article, could also be observed from Calar Alto cameras. All of these objects are detached fragments from Encke comet.



Three fireballs during night of November 6th to 7th, 2015

portadaThree fireballs could be observed during the night of November 6th to 7th, 2015. All of the three fireballs that could be observed, were produced by the impact of detached fragments of the Encke comet against our atmosphere. First impact took place at 20:49 UT of November 6th, second one could be observed at 23:16 UT of the same day and the last one, in November 7th, happened at 00:54 UT.
