A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 9.4.2018 at 22.18 Maaninka, Patalahti Observation number 72707

Visibility III / V

Ville Puoskari, Janne Voutilainen, Warkauden Kassiopeia

On a shooting trip, I left the camera to snap a timelapse to a nearby bird tower. As I walked back to the car on the horizon, a bright fireball flashed, which both observers rushed to see, only partially themselves.
