This fireball was recorded over the Mediterranean Sea on 15 May at 3:54 local time (1:54 universal time). The event was produced by a cometary meteoroid that hit the atmosphere at about 54000 km/h. The luminous phase began at an altitude of around 102 km over the sea, and ended at a height of about 61 km.

The fireball was recorded by the meteor-observing stations operating in the framework of the SMART Project (University of Huelva) from the astronomical observatories of Calar Alto, La Sagra (Granada), La Hita (Toledo), Sierra Nevada (Granada) and Sevilla.
