Possible re-entry of object or a meteor from Almería (Spain)
José Luis Ruiz Gómez, Spain
I was angry that I could not provide good data, I had the camera processingan earlier photo. For lack of anything else, I will try to give a description as best as possible. The visibility of the re-entry has lasted about 15 seconds, which seems quite enough for a meteor. For the trajectory
I leave a photo, the angle can vary several degrees, as well as the origin and purpose of the sighting, but must be approximate. The brightest star is Sirius. At the origin, it shone with magnitude +2, reddish, and I thought it would be a satellite, but as it progressed, it increased in brightness
until reaching a maximum of magnitude -2 to about 2/3 of the way with a water drop shape , And then decreased its magnitude to 0, just disappearing. There was no explosion or decomposition in other
objects. Color reddish to orange. The rest of the evening boring and what the sky promised.
