This sporadic fireball overflew Spain on 5 July 2020, at about 0:58 local time (which is equivalent to 22:58 UT on July 4). It was generated by a meteoroid following an asteroid-like orbit that hit the atmosphere at about 72,000 km/h. The fireball began at an altitude of about 81 km over the province of Toledo, and ended at a height of around 34 km over Madrid.

The event had an absolute magnitude of about -11. This bright meteor was recorded in the framework of the SMART project, operated by the Southwestern Europe Meteor Network (SWEMN) from the meteor-observing stations located at La Hita (Toledo), Sevilla, La Sagra (Granada), and Calar Alto (Almería). The event has been analyzed by the principal investigator of the SMART project: Dr. Jose M. Madiedo, from the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC).
