A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 16.9.2018 at 03.32 Helsinki, Pukinmäki Observation number 77686

Visibility III / V

Esko Lyytinen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

I didn't see, I got my fire camera. There is a 2-minute summary on the left low next to a tree. I put the brightness of Venus brighter, as it was seen from a distance here, but it would have been closer to the brightness of a half-moon perhaps even more. It was apparently the same as the observation:

There was a so-called. a rapid fireball that clearly burned to the ground and was sporadic.

Espoossa näkyi myös tulipallo eteläisellä taivaalla hyvin, vaikka ei ollut edes silmälaseja päässä. Kirkkaudeltaan kuin laskeutuvan lentokoneen valo. Kello oli 3:32
