A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 18.10.2021 at 00.28 Kerava Observation number 101835

Visibility III / V

I watched the sky and suddenly a fireball ignited right in front of me which fell at an angle of about 45 degrees to the lower right. The fireball ignited in the direction of 245 ° about 30 ° and went out at a height of about 10 ° above the horizon. Could break down into smaller pieces, leafless birch slightly impaired the visibility of the tail. Tail length about 10 degrees, flight speed amazingly slow.

Reminiscent of a fireworks flight, color bright white.
