This sporadic fireball was recorded over the Mediterranean Sea on 22 May 2018 at 23:37 UT. The event was produced by a fragment from an asteroid that hit the atmosphere at about 90,000 km/h. Its luminous phase began at an altitude of around 89 km over the sea, and ended at a height of about 19 km. The analysis of its atmospheric path shows that this was a meteorite-producing fireball. The meteorite would have fallen into the sea.

This event was recorded by the meteor-observing stations operating in the framework of the SMART Project (University of Huelva) from several astronomical observatories in Spain: Calar Alto, La Sagra, La Hita and Sevilla.

The following video shows the apparent path of the fireball over the domes of the Calar Alto Astronomical Observatory.
