A few days behind the fireball, a more accurate UTC timestamp pictured. This was left in Vesanto's camera, it was nothing super bright. The fireball is located just below the center of the image behind the tree branches. Looking back, it was nice to notice the movement of the northern lights in the cloud from the short video. Appear as a brighter "ribbon" rising from the center of the image to the right.

The first image I took of the approaching deaf cloud from the north came with a bright starburst, as if it had fallen slowly, it took a few seconds.

The camera shot with a serial fire north towards the sky, waiting for possible northern lights, they didn’t come, but the bright fireball remained in one shot. Image cropped from the whole 1: 1.

Anu Seilonen

A fireball was detected from a car on Kajaanintie about 3 km before Utajärvi in the northwest. The phenomenon was also recorded in the car camera as video. It looked handsome when there were no buildings or lights at that very point. The scene of the fearer was also visible in its entirety. There were no sounds inside the car. I noticed an observation from Seinäjoki apparently from this same fireball.

I took the camera for the night to photograph any northern lights. In the morning I looked at the pictures. There was no fire, but there was a surprise. The fireball had been left in the picture. Luckily, the camera shot with 5s exposure and 4s interval.

Esa Eronen, Turun Ursa

Fireball and smoke. Flame late Perseid. Based on the images, the smoke was visible in about ten images, or five minutes. No visual observation. I’ve been hunting for meteors with a Gopro camera that has a fairly wide field of view and can be safely left out unattended for the night. The camera does not fog or rain.

At night, I photographed a timelapse from the Milky Way. A fireball seen in Tampere had hit one of the 30-second exposures. The lens was already a bit foggy, so the picture isn’t double. 2 different cropping from the same picture.

From Vesanto's cameras a fireball, the direction of flight in the picture up to the left. Seen in the northwest direction, the duration when viewed from the video was 1.2 seconds. Remained the picture on both cameras. The lighter area in the shallow area shown in the pictures is the glow of the northern lights ...

Jouni Hovi

Cameras on a tripod and obisko heating collars around the neck. Settings for frames and shutters for work. Husband still warm to his back to watch if he hit the asses in points. Two sure asses and one sporadic style swing in the sky. Began to dream and had to go to the lands of dreams. Luckily, the cameras aren’t so tiring and the 60D 14mm obiska captured the twilight sky fireball in the morning south which I only noticed once after going through the pictures. I still looked at the havis of others and after seeing Pekka Parviainen's observation, I took another look at the image folder with...

For two hours the camera was shooting in a southeast direction, a total of five members of the flock grabbed the cell. The one in the picture was definitely the most handsome of the night, I didn't see this myself, but luckily there are good observations of this in the Sky Watch, more detailed information from there.

Quite a nice looking flight, quite bright yet and fast from Vesanto's cameras. After all, they were found when you wonder out loud :-) Flew between north and northwest, proceeding down to the left in the picture. Probably Perseidi based on direction and location. Watched from the video, the timestamps are: start: 20: 54: 37.9 UTC end: 20: 54: 39.2 UTC

The first of the season from the Nyrölä fireball camera. According to UA2, this belongs to the Kappa Cygnids, possibly an early one. At the bottom of the picture are the Moon and Jupiter.

Summer is already starting to darken and more is starting to show than Sunsets and night clouds. The previous evening ball fired by many was not found in the pictures from Tampere's cameras, but the last one recorded an earthy-looking calm flight of just over 6 seconds. The direction of Saturn, which also came to be observed here for the first time this summer. A little later, Jupiter also became bright in the picture area. Pictures taken from the beginning, middle and end of the flight.

Bright green, but maybe a changing color. It could have been fireworks, but it was quite different and went in the wrong direction. Another person also saw. I saw it when it appeared in the sky, but it disappeared behind the forest, because I think maybe I saw it behind the trees too.

I noticed today when I watched yesterday’s video clip, a light phenomenon that I thought was special. I can't say what it was. But I can’t add a video here, but maybe I could send it via email or some other way?

Observation from Vesanto's fireball camera. The fireball was seen in a northerly low, due to being farther away. The duration when checked from the video was 4 seconds, in reality the duration is probably a bit longer. The fireball progresses down to the left in the picture. There are other observations about this same case ...
