2015 ended with a big bang as a bright fireball exploded in the sky over Spain.
On the last day of 2015, a skycam in northeast Spain caught a very bright meteor burning up in the morning sky:
The gif animated image was captured by cameras at the Ebro Observatory (E. Blanch / CSIC-URLl – JMTrigo / CSIC-IEEC).
This bright fireball probably got brighter than the full Moon.
The tremendeous meteor was apparently accompanied by a strong boom as reported by many witnesses in central and northern Spain – from Aragon, Balearic Islands, Valencia, Madrid, Navarra, Basque Country to Murcia.
Here a compilation of different sounds meteor produce when they fall down to Earth.
