A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 19.10.2021 at 00.56 Vesanto Observation number 101920

Visibility III / V

Timo Kuhmonen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

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.
