Space Spotted by onlookers in Spain and Morocco
Recent images of a shooting star on the south coast of Spain have amazed many.
The incident was detected by astronomical observatories in Almeria, Seville, Toledo and the Sierra Nevada.
The fiery ball was thought to be travelling over the Mediterranean Sea at around 105,000 kilometres per hour.
It was recorded at 22:10 CET on Wednesday night at some 105 kilometres above the Mediterranean and some 23 kilometres from the Moroccan coast.
The speed of the rock and the Earth‘s atmosphere meant that the shooting star burnt up and appeared to be on fire.
The fiery appearance of the rock eventually extinguished at an altitude of 69 kilometres above the north of Morocco.
