A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 5.9.2021 at 00.26 Juva Observation number 100981

Visibility III / V

Petri Martikainen, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

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.
