bolidoAndaluciaOcc entrada

Los días 30 y 31 de Marzo de 2015 se registraron dos eventos de bólidos. El primero, sobre las 02:39 UT del día 30 de Marzo sobrevoló la provincia de Toledo, cerca de Madrid. El segundo (que se puede ver en la imagen de la izquierda), sucedió a las 21:58 del último día de Marzo sobre la parte occidental de Andalucía. El sistema de detección de bólidos de Calar Alto solo pudo observar el que sobrevoló los cielos andaluces, ya que el de Toledo ocurrió demasiado bajo sobre el horizonte par que el sistema lo pudiese captar. Sin embargo, las webcams de vigilancia de Calar Alto sí pudieron observar ambos eventos.
