[17/06/2018]And a new bright fireball observed on 16 June 2018


Another bright fireball was captured by the FRIPON camera in Brussels on 16 June around 21H11 UT (23H11 local time). Based on testimonies collected at the IMO website, the object seemed to move from East to West and could have flown above Belgium. The FRIPON image shows that the object moved to the South-East of Brussels. Again, only a few BRAMS stations were able to observe a faint overdense meteor echo. Below you can see the FRIPON detection with the camera in Uccle and spectrograms from Humain and Tintigny.




[15/06/2018]Fireball observed on 13 June 2018


A bright fireball was observed by many people in Belgium on 13 June 2018 at 22:50:21 UT, so around 00H50 on 14 June in local time. The object was captured by the FRIPON camera in Brussels. Based on testimonies collected at the IMO website, the object seemed to move from South to North and flew above West Germany. This is consistent with the FRIPON image obtained in Brussels where the object appears low on the horizon to the East (right of the all-sky image). Only a few BRAMS stations were able to observe a faint overdense meteor echo, mostly due to the distance between the object and the transmitter, but also possibly due to the geometry. Below you can see the FRIPON detection with the camera in Uccle and spectrograms from Humain and Overpelt (2 stations located quite to the East of Belgium).
