During the dawn of March 14th 2019, at 6:53 localtime (5:53 UT), some witnesses from Málaga, Sevilla and even Portugal, warned about a fireball crossing the skyes. At that time, there was already blue skies due to the sunrise and this caused that the fireball couldn't be registered by some of the cameras, as that sunrise light saturated the detectors. In fact, no data could be extracted of this object. But we publish the event, as the fireball was long and had to be very bright to be seen with even with the dawn light.

If you continue reading, you can see the videos that were registered with the Calar Alto Observatory West surveillance webcam.
