A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon - 22.12.2017 at 20.06 Taivassalo Observation number 68884

Visibility V / V

Juuso Nurmio, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

An image of a celestial camera apparently from this widely seen fireball.

EDIT: Added another picture earlier in the day where you can see that the time on the low horizon has gone and disappeared behind the trees. It hasn't been clear at all or the dome has been foggy.

Jaahas, tuossahan tuo juuri ja juuri näkyilee, hyvä koppi noin matalalta.

Itsellä hieman heikko tuuri, järkkäri nakutteli kyllä 15s frameja pihalla mutta pihapiirin puuston johdosta tähdätty pikkisen liikaa ylös.

Lisäsin vielä toisen kuvan päivältä, josta näkee, että aika tiukassa oli koppi puiden takaa.
