Visibility III / V

Esko Lyytinen, Ursa (Helsinki)

There is a fireball camera observation, I did not see myself.

It is connected to the observation of another camera and, despite the tense entry speed of a little over 16 km / s, practically burned out at an altitude of about 44 km. It was apparently a very light and weak material.

The duration of the automatic detection was 3.48 s.
