A fireball at night, as bright as a cresent moon - 31.8.2016 at 00.25 Korsholm Observation number 56393

Visibility IV / V

Marko Takala, Vaasan Andromeda

I was filming the northern lights and the Milky Way in Raippaluoto. just as he had packed the photography in his bag, a fireball flew green in the sky. Of course, it was annoying when I didn't get a picture of it, the camera would have been in the right direction 5 minutes earlier. :)

Kohtalontoveri, sama kävi mullekin. Nopea tilanne, ei siinä olisi kerennyt reagoimaan.
