Theres been little coverage of this story in the press so far on this news-story, Ive only seen it so far on SkyNews (Had a camera-recording of the incident), and a slight mention on FoxNews.
Anyway, what happened was 2 days ago in Northern Spain, people saw a meteor flying over the Town of Bilbao at over 5x supersonic speed, and they reported 2 massive bangs, the 2nd which occurred some seconds after the meteor was seen.
People noticed in the sky a streak of light, just like a fireball, which was way brighter than the sun.
Worried people thought a plane had crashed so they called local authorities, it wasnt until a space enthusisat rang up to say what they had seen was a meteor, until the authorities realised what had happened.
Apparently a person standing on the shore-line saw the meteor fly overhead, and some seconds later it impacted the sea, which (to the eyewitness) rose upwards some 8 storeys high (estimated.)
It just goes to show how something like this could easily happen over a City or crowded area, Imagine if it had impacted some few minutes Later, it would have gone somewhere into Southern England.
Its only time until the "big-one" hits.

I come from Madrid, i did not see anything but my sister saw something like a fireball coming from the sky down to the earth. I think it has to do with a meteorite rests, but i believe they are still studing it.

"Its only (a matter of) time until the "big-one" hits."
This is certain. Sooner or later, the law of averages will catch up with us and we'll be facing an Extinction Level Event like that popularized in the movie, 'Deep Impact'. (By the way, I think that film did the scenario better than 'Armegeddon', more moving and less ridiculous and without the requisite macho swaggering typical of Jerry Brukheimer productions.) But that sort of thing happens every so many millions of years and we might well be about due for another one. So let's not decommission all of our nukes in the interest of world peace, we'd better save some for the inevitable day when we have to deflect a great big rock from hitting the Earth. And it may take a lot to do it!
