Raw Translation :


Barcelona (Editorial) .- At 6.55 pm on Sunday, a meteorite, as confirmed by the Research Network Fireballs and Meteorites, illuminated the sky of Barcelona. The sighting was confirmed by the Spanish Meteorological Agency (Aemet) in Catalonia through its Twitter account. In fact, the phenomenon has not been local: was last seen at different points of the Spanish geography, since Aemet is not the only one who has noticed this sighting, which was also shared by many netizens through social networks.
Emergency services have received a few calls from people who explained the sighting of a fireball in the sky of Barcelona.
Following confirmation by the Aemet, the CSIC has started investigation into the incident to confirm the phenomenon and find the location of the alleged impact.

That doesn't look like a hit, just a bolide.

Doubt anything significant made it to the ground

Well, it will be significant if the number of this objects increases in a time frame. Wise to have a record and be alert.

Looks like not much made it to the ground, but still quite an impressive show!

Now, the question that remains: is there an uptick in these things entering out atmosphere, or an increase in our noticing it and capturing it on camera?

Good question. In my opinion, the fact that there are more recorded events due the increase of the number of cameras in the world soon will not be a valid argument. It's been years already since video/photo devices became popular.

It's important to handle wisely alll the information we receive now thru all these devices, avoiding overreaction.

Out of curiosity, why do you think it will not be valid anymore? Just because something became popular, does not mean that the number of devices stops increasing.

Increased number of population means an increased number of camera phone operators. More buildings being built that may have video cameras on them, etc.

So why would you think the number of cameras would stop increasing?

It's all recorded here. www.lpi.usra.edu...
The NASA runs a surveillance authority supported by the USRA that works on a system of predictive value.

Not sure if you understood me. What I mean is focused in that famous quote : "the number of sights increased because we have more cameras around". Still valid, but not for too long. Already cameras everywhere and it's time to run new stats starting somewhere in the last 5 years.

Looks that way, maybe those that thought it landed actually ducked.

I'd say this is a part of 2014 RC that went over Sunday. Sometimes rocks make it to Earth during an event.

And Death rode a pale, sick horse, and the spirit of Hell followed it.

That, or it could be Satan. Like how the heavens tremble as if it was lightning across the sky.

"And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven."
Luke 10:18

Religion...Its a love an hate thing sometimes.

On this link, the comments also mentions a fireball seen in Grenoble, France just before the Spanish one was seen.

That is kind of what I was thinking.
I think there are smaller chunks that follow along with the asteroids, and when we got the close buzz,
a few smaller pieces ran into us.
