Two bright fireballs on July 20th and 24th

interior2.pngTwo bright fireballs were observed from Calar Alto Observatory in Almería on July  20th and 24th 2022.

First one took place at 21h39 UT of July 20th, while the second one happened at 22h05 UT of July 24th.

Both fireballs flew above east skies, but unfortunately no other data could be gathered from these phenomena.

Anyway, some Calar Alto Observatory external cameras registered both objects.

Calar Alto (CAHA) fireball detection station, together with the one at the Observatory of Sierra Nevada (IAA-CSIC) and others placed at different locations in Spain, are part of the S.M.A.R.T. project led by Professor José María Madiedo (IAA) to track that kind of objects. Specifically, Calar Alto (CAHA) station and the one at Sierra Nevada (IAA-CSIC) constitute a collaboration agreement between the IAA researcher José María Madiedo and both institutions.
