According to specialists, the space rock entered Earth atmosphere with more than 100’000 kilometers per hour and is probably related to the Southern Taurid meteor shower produced by dust and debris from Comet Encke (2P/Encke).

The meteor explosion occurred at about 106 miles above sea level, over the strait of Gibraltar. The fireball was moving in the northwest direction.

Tonight the Draconid meteor shower peaks, followed by the Orionid end of October 2015. So expect more light and booms from the sky.
