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.

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.
