A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 6.12.2016 at 04.34 Helsinki Observation number 58778

Visibility III / V

Esko Lyytinen, Ursa (Helsinki)

I got a fireball camera, I didn't see it.

And when you take a closer look at the picture, another fireball appears in the same 2-minute sum picture. There is a flash on the lower right and up to the right shows a trace before the flash. It was quite far away and I think the brightness of the flash was absolutely fireball class even here. That distant was visible about a minute and a half earlier than that near one flew. They do not belong to the same flock, for example, so they happened to be close to each other in time.
