3 July, fireball at Sevilla, Spain

This meteor overflew the south of Spain on 2020 July 3 at about 3:49 local time (equivalent to 1:49 universal time). It was generated by a rock from a comet that hit the atmosphere at around 69,000 km/h. It began at an altitude of about 87 km over the province of Seville, and ended at a height of around 52 km. The total length travelled by the meteoroid in the atmosphere was of about 67 km.

3 July, passing by of comet Neowise
(what an interesting name)

https://www.spaceweather.com/ said:
BRIGHT MORNING COMET: Comets are usually seen in the dark of night. Comet NEOWISE (C/2020 F3) is different. The incredible morning comet is surrounded by twilight-blue. Fred Espenak of Portal, AZ, took this picture just before daybreak on the 4th of July:


"It was my second morning observing Comet NEOWISE," says Espenak. "Wow! The comet was easy to see in 7x40 binoculars. With the naked eye, it was much more difficult, but I think I caught glimpses of it with a bit of averted vision."

Comet NEOWISE passed by the sun near the orbit of Mercury on July 3rd, and it is only now starting to emerge from the sun's glare. Espenak photographed the comet less than an hour before local sunrise while the sky was filled with moderate twilight.

Despite the ambient glare, Espenak was able to accurately estimate the comet's magnitude. "Using the nearby stars Theta Auriga (v=+2.6) and Beta Tauri (Elnath, v=+1.7), I would estimate that the nucleus of NEOWISE was about +2," he says. "If this brightness holds, the comet will become much easier to see in coming days when it can be seen in a darker sky." Sky maps: July 4, 5, 6.

18 July, supposdely? fireball seen at Saltillo, Coahuila, México.




Although,
What was seen today at dawn, around 2am in the skies over much of Mexico was not a #meteorite, but "space junk", specifically part of a Russian Soyuz rocket.
Should parts of it hit the ground, it would fall on Texas.

This part of the rocket re-entered the atmosphere at ~27000 km/h (orbital speed) in a south-north direction, while being destroyed by the enormous forces and temperature it was experiencing.

It can be distinguished from a bolide, meteor or comet by its speed, as it moves slowly.

In this video from Guanajuato you can see that the event occurs "far away". Surely the shot is made looking at the northeast.


Another video, this time much further south, in the state of Morelos. There, the atmospheric re-entry had just begun.
