Spanish:
Varios avistamientos de meteoros han sido reportados recientemente a la Sociedad de Astronomía del Caribe (SAC). La entidad explicó que la Tierra esta pasando por las zonas de residuos de varios cometas por lo que se estarían viendo algunos meteoros especialmente tarde en la noche. Si usted observa uno notable, favor de reportarlo en Facebook.com/sociedad.astronomia o en SociedadAstronomia.com o al correo sociedadastronomia@gmail.com

English:
There are some reports of recent bright Meteor sightings over Puerto Rico and other countries. The "Sociedad de Astronomia del Caribe" (Caribbean Astronomical Society) explains that as part of Earth's orbit around the Sun, sometimes our planet enters into a zone where comets left behind some debris; when those particles enter Earth's atmosphere at great speeds, friction causes them to burn and viola: we see a meteor. Some meteors look really bright, like the "Alpha Capricornid" fireball seen on this video.
