A fireball at night, brighter than the venus - 25.4.2022 at 00.54 Pöytyä Observation number 106407

Visibility III / V

I was enjoying the nice weather and even when it is bright and about dark I described the north a bit if I accidentally had repos. This fireball flew from west to east at a time and the duration was pretty much that 4 seconds. The old man he left behind was almost the length of the sky. I shot with a 35mm lens and 4s exposure so only a small part was visible. The fireball eventually split into 2 or 3 parts which then faded. In the pictures, the whole landscape is slightly cropped and still crop separately into a fireball.

Koitin suhteellisen tarkka olla, voisin vielä tarkistaa googlemapista ..

60.74297453840645, 22.4125676196227 varmaan ei monella metrillä mene pieleen

Oli todennäköisesti avaruusromua.Tuli lännestä,osui ilmakehään Seinäjoen paikkeilla ja kimposi takaisin avaruuteen Pieksämäen paikkeilla.Nopeutta on ollut yli 8km/s eli tullut vähän kauempaa.Kiinnostava tapaus.
