A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 31.3.2017 at 23.19 Ikaalinen, Sisättö Observation number 62713

Visibility III / V

Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

I described the Moon (the halo of the Moon) and the beginning of the Northern Lights and the Milky Way in the same picture and in that same a fireball flew in the northern sky. There was enough exposure in the luck that the streak left by the fireball came into the picture.
