A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon - 6.12.2018 at 20.17 Ikaalinen, Sisättö Observation number 79706

Visibility Unclassified

Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

I watched from the window if there was a clear sky, suddenly a bright fireball burning in orange came from the south towards the north. Its flight was quite slow and maybe went off at about the bottom of Ottawa. It was big in size, not a delicate stellar flight.

Oli varmaankin hieno nähdä tämä livenä. Vahtikameraankin tallentui kirkkaana: https://www.taivaanvahti.fi/observations/show/79711
