On 2020 January 28 at 23:08 UT, a rock from an asteroid entered the atmosphere at about 17 km/s and generated a mag. -14 fireball that overflew the south of Spain. The event was recorded by the cameras operated in the framework of the SMART project. This project is being conducted by the Southwestern Europe Meteor Network (SWEMN), which in turn is leaded by the Institute of Astrophysics of Andalusia (IAA-CSIC). SMART obtained footage of the fireball from the astronomical observatories of Calar Alto (Almeria), La Sagra (Granada) and Seville.

The analysis of this sporadic event reveals that the fireball began at a height of about 91 km over the province of Cadiz (SW of Spain). It moved northeastwards and ended at a height of around 20 km over the province of Seville. The terminal point of the luminous trajectory was located almost over Arahal, a small town in Seville. The meteoroid was not completely destroyed at that point, which implies that this was a meteorite-producing fireball.

This video shows several images of the fireball and its atmospheric trajectory:
