A fireball at night, as bright as the sun - 25.9.2021 at 20.20 Turku Observation number 101467

Visibility III / V


We spotted a fireball from the balcony. The fireball was very bright and clearly distinguished itself from a normal starburst. The observation lasted for about a second, after which the fireball disappeared from the field of view behind the apartment building in a south / southwest direction. The fireball flew pretty low.
