The newest member of the TaUsra camera family recorded the morning fireball. I was already watching the videos on the NVR right in the morning and I couldn’t find anything but luckily the retest now now with the right time was working.

A fireball at night, as bright as a cresent moon

9.1.2018 at 08.08 - Helsinki, Pukinmäki (IV)
Esko Lyytinen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

I didn’t see, I got my fireball camera through a tree branch. The exact time was 08.07.25 and the direction lost 348, at an altitude of 2.1 (degrees). It is estimated that it flew in the wigs of the Gulf of Bothnia, ie clearly north of the Kvarken with an entry speed of more than 30 km / s. Something "crumbs" may have come down all the way to the sea. It came pretty sharply from the east side.
