Bright Meteor Event Observed on the evening of March 5th by SCASS Towers

On the evening of March 05, 2019, a bright meteor has been observed and detected from the UAEMMN stations at Al-Yahar and Liwa. This meteor is approximated to have an apparent magnitude of more than -4 which therefore makes it a fireball. The meteor has been captured by seven cameras (3 from Liwa and 4 from Al-Yahar) of the UAEMMN towers. The figures show the captured meteor from Liwa and Al-Yahar.



The meteor was observed from Liwa as indicated by the yellow line pointing towards the east, while from Al-Yahar it was seen towards the south-west direction indicated by the red line. After conducting some calculations, we expect the meteor to have fallen in the area marked by the red circle.
