Fireball with possible cometary origin on July 7th, 2015

portadaThis fireball happened on July 7th, 2015, about 20:01:10 UT, when there was still some daylight. Unfortunately, this object seems to be observed only at Calar Alto fireball detection station and external surveillance webcams, so presently neither triangulation could be achieved nor its ground path.
