Visibility IV / V

Esko Lyytinen, Ursa (Helsinki)

I got a fireball camera, I didn’t see the flight myself. Analyzing a few different camera images, it turned out that there is an SPE flock meteor, i.e. Sepetmber epsilon Perseids, usually called only September Perseids.

And there are several other observations and pictures in the sky.
