A fireball at night, as bright as the sun

This kind of brighter fireball from Ivalo's sky camera. The first information I got about this was when my dad called that there was a thunderstorm when he flashed a couple of times and after about a minute he first banged and then heard a smoother rumble. The duration is still only an estimate, I haven't had time to analyze the timing data properly yet.

A fireball at night, brighter than a full moon

Video of a fireball shot by a camera on the mast. At the end, it looks like the ball is hitting the ground and flaring.

A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon

Once observations are requested, then if this is of any help. The picture shows a light at the top right of the time. The blue arrow points north. This flash had caught on to two frames. Normally, the image is dark black, so I guess that light comes from the meteor. There is about as much light as there is during the full moon. The exact time of the clock is 18:40:23. EDIT: Poor quality yotube video
