    Hi all,
    A fireball was observed at Vejer de la Frontera, Cadiz (Spain,
    36.2500N, 5.9670W) on December 4 at 18:15 GMT (19:15 CET). The witness
    reported the fireball was observed from Vejer de la Frontera and from 50
    km away from that town.  According to that information, it is extremely
    improbable the observation corresponds to a meteor or a space debris
    reentry. Any help to identify it would be most welcome.
