A fireball at night, brighter than a full moon

Timo Kuhmonen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

With a little delay comes, we also share my own observation. It would have been handsome to see this fireball with the naked eye (even), now it was up to the camera to grab the flight. The video shows several bright flashes in the sky during the final flight, which is likely to have detached pieces from the song. There is no sound perception, at that moment I was indoors. Waiting for the next bright fireball :-)

A fireball at night, brigter than the venus

Friday night’s fireball became an observation for two surveillance cameras capturing the sky. One is in the Ursa Observatory in Tampere and the other in Kangasala.

Veli-Pekka Hentunen, Warkauden Kassiopeia

The fireball was clearly in the image of the Härkämäki Observatory's sky camera, even though the sky was cloudy throughout. Only the brightest stars were faintly visible in the sky. The fireball began to appear about 30 degrees above the horizon and brightened very strongly right on the horizon.

A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon

Juuso Nurmio, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

An image of a celestial camera apparently from this widely seen fireball. EDIT: Added another picture earlier in the day where you can see that the time on the low horizon has gone and disappeared behind the trees. It hasn't been clear at all or the dome has been foggy.
