Reuters reported that the wreckage of a Chinese rocket’s entry into the atmosphere was seen over Morocco and Spain and reports were received, Reuters reported.

According to the report on the 21st (local time), the Andalusia Institute of Astrophysics in Spain announced that the wreckage of the Chinese Changjing 2F (CZ-2F) orbital rocket was observed breaking into several pieces as it entered the atmosphere.

China launched Shenzhou 14 carrying three astronauts on the Changjeong 2F and Yao-14 rockets on the 5th.

According to the local media in Morocco, the rocket debris passed over the northern part of Morocco from the Atlantic Ocean at about 12:30 am local time, and it is said that it flew over the Mediterranean Sea between Morocco and Spain and passed about 10 km from Almeria in southern Spain.

The rocket wreck disappeared as it passed through the Mediterranean Sea between Algeria and Spain, about 100 kilometers off the coast of the province of Murcia in southern Spain.

In Morocco and Spain, eyewitness accounts of people seeing a series of fireballs have been posted on social media.

One Twitter user said that people stopped cars on highways to watch rocket wreckage entering the atmosphere. “It was the most spectacular thing I had ever seen from the sky,” a Spanish citizen who filmed the event himself told Reuters.

Spanish citizens posted the video on Twitter, speculating that the object was a meteor or an alien spacecraft.
