Giant fireball filmed over Galicia

A great fireball pierced the sky of Spain this morning, and the phenomenon was immortalized by hundreds of citizens who expressed their surprise and amazement. In Galicia, it was also perfectly visible.

As they point out from the Ramón María Aller Astronomical Observatory, of the University of Santiago, what many saw was not a racing car, "simply because of the duration of the light, more than 40 seconds". What was it about then?

Well, nothing more and nothing less than the re-entry of a Russian rocket, the Soyuz SL-AR / B, launched from the Muscovite cosmodrome in Baykonur (Kazakhstan) last Saturday, April 25, with the aim of carrying cargo to the International Space Station.
