AbstractIn the continuous monitoring of the night sky over the Iberian Peninsula that is performing from 1999 [1] the Spanish Meteor Network (SPMN) operates about 200 cameras in 30 stations distributed around Spain. Three of the main goals of the SPMN network are obtaining scientific data, providing a rational explanation to bright fireball events, and recover new meteorites. We have a special program dealing with the impact hazard associated with large meteoroids, so gaining insight about the Taurid complex associated with comet 2P/Encke is particularly relevant [1, 2]. Current evidence supports that evolved comets can produce meter-sized meteoroids that are potential meteorite droppers with significant danger by shock waves like e.g. the Chelyabinsk event [3]. We should not forget that the Tunguska event could have been produced by a fragment of comet 2P/Encke [4].
