The images of a large sphere that crossed the sky of Spain and Portugal in the early hours of this May 19 (the night of May 18 in Colombia) are quickly spreading through social networks.

Internet users have shown the “wonderful” moment that was experienced when what appears to be a meteorite passed at high speed, leaving a trail of light with bluish and green tones that turned night into day for a few seconds.

The celestial body was observed for about ten seconds, surprising thousands of people, as can be seen in the videos broadcast on the social network X.

The fireball caused astonishment not only because it is a unique event, but also because of how little there has been talk for days that this could happen.

​”Why haven’t they notified us, with this they couldn’t notify us even a few hours before to see it cool?” said a user from Spain on her X account.

At the moment there is no official statement from the scientific community giving details of what happened or its impact on the earth.

It is known that the celestial body passed the atmosphere and disintegrated shortly after.

According to NASA, meteorites are “small asteroid fragments that have crossed our atmosphere and landed on the Earth’s surface” and, as in this case, disintegrated in the air.
