A fireball at night, brighter than the venus - 13.11.2022 at 00.47 Jyväskylä Observation number 110735

Visibility III / V

Vesa Vasankari, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

On Pylkönmäki in Saarijärvi, this recording was found with the help of a hand-held observation from the car. During the brightest part of the fireball, a smaller light source follows above its main part. The camera shoots at an angle of approx. 45° both vertically and horizontally through one layer of window glass, so this may just be a reflection from the brightest spot. The companion responsible for the less bright phases of the fireball is not visible on the recording.
