A fireball at night, brighter than the venus - 12.9.2022 at 21.42 Jyväskylä Observation number 109345

Visibility III / V

Harri Kiiskinen, Jyväskylän Sirius

The bright fireball was recorded in the image of the Nyrölä meteor camera. The flight time determined from the picture is 11 s, but in reality it is greater than this, because the initial flight was not recorded on video. About halfway through, the meteor split into two parts, one of which faded quickly.

Hienosti toteutetut kuvat tulipallosta!

No kyllä! Eihän tuota hajoamista summakuvasta voikaan erottaa. Hieno!

Annoin giffille ImageMagick -coalesce -käsittelyn, kun se ei toiminut ihan oikein pikkukuvana (vaikka omaan ikkunaan tai isommaksi kikattuna näytti siltä kuin pitikin).
