A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 2.4.2016 at 22.41 Ikaalinen, Sisättö Observation number 51281

Visibility III / V

Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

The second fireball for the same evening is already almost a lottery win. It didn't take an hour to stand, so a similar fireball flew a little low horizontally, curving slightly from the northeast. The flight took quite a long time, maybe about 4 to 5 seconds, like the previous one. The fireball had a sparkling long tail.
