A fireball in a twilight sky - 26.10.2015 at 17.40 Piikkiö Observation number 44672

Visibility IV / V

I saw a long stand and head like a cotton ball light.

Flew in the sky diagonally and I tried to see if it would land, but went out into the sky. Great sight :)

Valopallo putosi suoraan alaspäin n. 2 sek. ja ympärillä näytti olevan tummaa savua.
