A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 25.3.2015 at 21.46 Ikaalinen Observation number 36193

Visibility III / V

Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

I was filming the northern lights and suddenly a fireball flew in the northern sky, the direction was apparently northwest. It burned green, like that big fireball (March 18, 2015). However, it was not quite as bright.

The time on the camera was 21.46. The phone time again showed 21.45.

This happened to hit the picture.

Hupsis! Olipas tullut ikävä kömmähdys tuon vuosiluvun kanssa. Vuosi on 2015. Anteeksi kaiken aikaa. Kiitos Mauri ja Panu.
