A fireball at night, brighter than the venus - 7.10.2022 at 03.09 Vesanto Observation number 109812

Visibility III / V


Fireball in the morning hours. Seen in the middle of the north and north-west in the low sky. At the same time, a trace was found in the radio observations, probably originating from this fireball. The reflection was only found on the frequency of the OH9SIX beacon (Pirttikoski). On other frequencies of beacons in the northern direction (e.g. northern Norway) no reflection was seen. Judging from the video, there has also been an aurora borealis low in the northern sky...

Hei, Näin juuri Revonlahden(Pohjois-Pohjanmaa)kohdalla ilmeisesti ISON komeetan tai meteoriitin palamisen ja hajoamisen. Kello oli 21.37 ja kokonaisuus kesti ehkä 3-4 sekuntia. Valopallo laski loivasti idästä länteen, meren rannalla. Mikähän se oli?

Oli tarttunut omaan Vesannon kameraan myös (8.10.2022, 18:37:35 UTC). Kannatta laatia siitä havainto...

Hei, mikähän mahtoi olla tuo tulipallo, jonka Jukka Isotalo myös havoinnoi? Itse näin sen Ylöjärvellä. Oli komea ja tosiaan kestoltaan noin 3-4 sekuntia.

Kyseessä oli tuon illan kirkkain tulipallo,sama josta on tehty tusinan verran havaintoja eripuolilta Suomea.Tuli ilmakehään Kostamuksen tienoilla ja lensi siitä länteen sammuen jossain Suomussalmen paikkeilla yli 50 km korkeudessa.
