A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 1.9.2020 at 00.15 Helsinki 72 Observation number 93301

Visibility III / V

Esko Lyytinen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

I will put an observation here because there are a couple of other observations on this. There is a fireball camera observation and I did not see it myself.

I attach a 2-minute summary image and a BTrail image that also shows a rear extension on the star map. Here is also the second fireball of the night, from which point I will also put the observation.

EDIT: That other one is on the link

Analysoin itsekin tätä Eskon havaintoa, ortodromi ja aika näyttäisi istuvan jokseenkin hyvin esimerkiksi 33 NIA Northern Iota Aquariids -meteoriparveen.

Saan kahden eri kameran havainnoista näennäiseksi radiantiksi 352, +1.5 ja geosentriseksi 352,-1. On varsin hyvä ehdokas Jannen ehdottamaan parveen.
