A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 9.12.2020 at 22.43 Kontiolahti Observation number 95201

Visibility III / V

Pasi Tuomainen, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

During the capability of the northern lights, a fireball faded away. The smoke remained in the sky until 11:10 p.m., when it was hard to identify the gizzard anymore, so about half an hour!
