A brilliant meteor during the day, blasted over Cuba this month. That's where it came from
Astronomers have just received the articles of the meteor that ignited Cuba earlier this month.
The day sky sky blinded thousands of people in West Cuba on February 1. Many of these people have taken footage of the meteor or the path of debris they left after burning, allowing the reconstruction of the rock rock path.
"We were very happy that at least three relatively reliable videos, including one of incredible quality, could be available on the Internet for such a short time," Jorge Zuluaga, Professor at the Institute of Physics (IoP) at the University of Antiochia in Colombia, says in a statement. "Reconstruction of the trajectory of a meteor requires at least three observers on earth," added Zuluaga. "Although several satellite images have been recorded and are available online without any observations from the ground, precise reconstruction is not possible."
