A fireball at night, brighter than a full moon - 22.12.2017 at 20.06 Vesanto Observation number 69250

Visibility V / V

Timo Kuhmonen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

With a little delay comes, we also share my own observation. It would have been handsome to see this fireball with the naked eye (even), now it was up to the camera to grab the flight. The video shows several bright flashes in the sky during the final flight, which is likely to have detached pieces from the song. There is no sound perception, at that moment I was indoors. Waiting for the next bright fireball :-)

Löysin muistiinpanon tästä ilmiöstä tänään keskiviikkona 22.maaliskuuta 2023. Näin suuren punaisen valopallon naapurin autoterminaalin katon yläpuolella. Olin yksin kotona, puoliso kaupassa. En osaa tarkalleen sanoa, kuinka kauan ilmiötä kesti, ehkä puoli minuuttia tai enemmän. Nimimerkki "ihmettä kerrakseen". Saman päivän iltana puhuttiin meteoriitista radiouutisissa.  tämän kirjoitti siis Ritva Vanhanen, s. 1942, Vaskio, lähellä Saloa Varsinaissuomessa 22.3.2023
