May 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.
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.
The 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.
Three 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.
Last October 28th 2015, two bright fireballs could be observed. The most impressive was the first one that flew over Mediterranean sea. Both objects were associated to Encke comet. The first, over Mediterranean sea one took place about 3:05 UT while the second one, over Madrid Spanish region, could be seen about 22:16 UT (23:16 local)
