I left the camera for the night to photograph the northern lights. A pretty bright fireball must have been at dawn. 2 15s exposures. The stunned ball hit just between the two exposures. Frost on the lens. The third image is a combination of the two. Vana looks broken. Information missed between two exposures.

Petri Martikainen, Ursa (Itä-Suomi)

At night, I photographed a timelapse from the Milky Way. A fireball seen in Tampere had hit one of the 30-second exposures. The lens was already a bit foggy, so the picture isn’t double. 2 different cropping from the same picture.

A fireball at night, as bright as a cresent moon

17.4.2021 at 00.18 - Ikaalinen, Sisättö (IV)
Heidi Rikala, Ursa (Helsinki)

The photo had been caught by a bright fireball in connection with the shooting of the northern lights. It’s a little hard now to tell anything about it when I left the camera to take a picture of the time I actually was having coffee. However, luckily I was left in the picture. 6 second exposure. I checked the camera clock and it was 5 minutes behind. The correct time for fireball is 00.23.

I was just putting the camera on a tripod when I saw an orange burning fireball in the north direction, I just had time to get a picture of its final flight. #bongaa100

Jorma Koski, Ursa (Helsinki)

The camera shot with a serial fire north towards the sky, waiting for possible northern lights, they didn’t come, but the bright fireball remained in one shot. Image cropped from the whole 1: 1.

17.4.2021 at 23.15 - Vesanto (IV)
Timo Kuhmonen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Observation from Vesanto's fireball camera. The fireball was seen in a northerly low, due to being farther away. The duration when checked from the video was 4 seconds, in reality the duration is probably a bit longer. The fireball progresses down to the left in the picture. There are other observations about this same case ...

Picture of a fireball camera. Apparently the same as seen in Poland: https://www.taivaanvahti.fi/observations/show/97870

A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon

5.8.2021 at 23.54 - Vesanto (V)
Timo Kuhmonen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Quite a nice looking flight, quite bright yet and fast from Vesanto's cameras. After all, they were found when you wonder out loud :-) Flew between north and northwest, proceeding down to the left in the picture. Probably Perseidi based on direction and location. Watched from the video, the timestamps are: start: 20: 54: 37.9 UTC end: 20: 54: 39.2 UTC

Timo Kuhmonen, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

From Vesanto's cameras a fireball, the direction of flight in the picture up to the left. Seen in the northwest direction, the duration when viewed from the video was 1.2 seconds. Remained the picture on both cameras. The lighter area in the shallow area shown in the pictures is the glow of the northern lights ...

Esa Eronen, Turun Ursa

Fireball and smoke. Flame late Perseid. Based on the images, the smoke was visible in about ten images, or five minutes. No visual observation. I’ve been hunting for meteors with a Gopro camera that has a fairly wide field of view and can be safely left out unattended for the night. The camera does not fog or rain.

Markku Lintinen, Tampereen Ursa

Fireball on a northern lights background. A little special that the fireball would seem to disappear behind the northern lights, though that shouldn’t be the case. Even the clouds were not visible in the direction of the later brighter northern lights of the tribe.

A fireball in a twilight sky

15.7.2021 at 01.20 - Tampere (IV)
Markku Lintinen, Tampereen Ursa

Summer is already starting to darken and more is starting to show than Sunsets and night clouds. The previous evening ball fired by many was not found in the pictures from Tampere's cameras, but the last one recorded an earthy-looking calm flight of just over 6 seconds. The direction of Saturn, which also came to be observed here for the first time this summer. A little later, Jupiter also became bright in the picture area. Pictures taken from the beginning, middle and end of the flight.

At night 10./11.4. the fireball seen was also recorded in the Bear Camera images. We were at the time with Vesa Puistovaara and Jari Kuula in Nakkila, where we also got some kind of visual observation of this fireball.
