A fireball at night, as bright as a cresent moon - 2.10.2021 at 20.13 Utajärvi Observation number 101674

Visibility III / V

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.

Hieno video, onnittelut! Yllättävän pitkä lento ollut.

Kiitos! Paras tallenne autokamerassa oikeastaan ikinä. :) Omin silminkin ehti havaita ihan alusta asti, oli kirkkaampi kuin miltä kamerassa näyttää.

Moi! Olen Seinäjoen havainnon jättäjä ja olen videon perusteella varma, että kyseessä sama tulipallo. Upea video! :)
