Large meteoroids on minor cometary streams : recent events detected by the Spanish fireball network
F. L. Whipple first modeled the forma-tion of meteoroid streams from the continuous subli-mation of the ice-rich regions in cometary nuclei [1,2,3]. Particles lifted off from ice-rich regions by the sublimated gas drag ...
Robotic systems for meteor observing and moon impact flashes detection in Spain
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2010)
A robotic observatory has been setup in the south-west of Spain with the aim to study meteoroids interacting with the Earth's atmosphere and meteoroids impacting on the Moon's surface. This is achieved by using an array ...

The fall of the Berduc meteorite took place on April 7, 2008, at 01 h 02 min 28 s +/- 1 s UTC. A daylight fireball was witnessed by hundreds of people from Argentina and Uruguay, and also recorded by an infrasound array ...
On the development of robotic CCD video meteor observing station in Spain
Since 2006 the SPanish Meteor Network (SPMN) has set up several automated video stations in Spain for increasing the atmospheric cover-age of the already existing low-scan-rate all-sky CCD systems [1, 2]. However, in spite ...
Analisys of a potential meteorite-dropping event over Spain in 2009
The SPanish Meteor Network (SPMN) is performing a continuous monitoring of meteor activity over Spain and neighbouring countries. For this purpose we employ, among other systems, several video observing stations located ...
