On September 25, 2018, the third most energetic fireball of 2018 exploded over Reunion island at 2:10 pm UT. The very bright meteor was detected by NASA sensors and the calculated impact energy was close to 1.9 kT.
1.9kT is the third most energetic meteor event since the beginning of the year. The amazing sky phenomenon occurred South of Reunion and Mauritius Islands, over the Indian Ocean, leaving no chances of finding associated meteorites.
The two larger energetic events occurred over Russia on June 21, and Greenland on July 25.

And it seems that weird things love to happen over those remote islands in September. Just a bit more than 1 year ago, on September 14, 2017, exactly, another huge fireball rattled homes on La Reunion and Mauritius islands. This weird orb was also flying over both islands in September 2013.
Enigmatic, isn’t it?
