A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 18.3.2015 at 21.01 Ikaalinen Observation number 34830

Visibility III / V

Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

A rather insane fireball flew in the eastern sky towards the north low above the tree tops. It burned green and was followed by an orange wider wool. Eventually it disintegrated into pieces that glowed for a moment and went out. The camera was - but I didn’t get to shoot, was such an amazing sight.

Minullakin oli kamera, ja suunnattuna hetkeä aiemmin suurinpiirtein tulipallon suuntaan. En ole ennen noin kirkasta tulipalloa nähnytkään.
