A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 24.11.2011 at 19.35 Helsinki, Pukinmäki Observation number 383

Visibility III / V

Esko Lyytinen, Ursa (Helsinki)

It is the same fireball, apparently belonging to the southern flock of Taurid, from which a couple of observations have already been made. I didn’t see the subject, but I got a fireball camera.

The duration in the fireball camera was about 3 seconds.

Appeared on several cameras of the fireball team.

Liitin vielä UFOOrbit ohjelman karttakuvan missä lensi. Se yhdisti viideltä kameralta saadut automaattihavainnot.

Näiden lisäksi näkyi vielä ainakin kolmen aseman viidessä eri kamerassa. Näiltä ei ole automattimittauksia, eikä niitä ole manuaalisesti mitattu.
