A fireball at night, as bright as a crescent moon - 31.10.2022 at 01.22 Jyväskylä Observation number 110538

Visibility III / V

Vesa Vasankari, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

This recording was found based on the observations of, among others, Nyrölä and Ulvila. The speed, direction and brightness make this one of the most dramatic that my cameras have captured in Jyväskylä. In addition, the beginning of the fireball's flight is left out of the picture. The second clip is a partial enlargement of the first.

Hieno video tosiaan.Ei mikään ihme että näytti noin dramaattiselta.Tulipallo syttyi Jyväskylän yläpuolella josta se meni pohjoiseen.Sammui yli 50 km:n korkeudessa.

Kiitos näistä lisätiedoista. Aina yhtä mielenkiintoista oppia vähän enemmän näkemästään tai kameran itsenäisesti kuvaamasta.
