(NBC) - A fireball was caught on camera Wednesday over Spain.

The footage from the Calar Alto Observatory shows the fireball over the southern Spanish city of Cordoba.

According to experts, the fireball was produced by a fragment from a comet and traveled at a speed of 59 mph.  It later crashed against the earth's atmosphere and producing a spectacular flash.

The observatory doesn't know if this fireball has any relation with two others that have crossed the Spanish skies in the last days.

According to a report from NASA, an exceptionally bright meteor likely exploded over the South Atlantic Ocean on Feb. 6.
