A fireball at night, brighter than the venus

25.9.2022 at 05.34 - Jyväskylä (III)
Vesa Vasankari, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

With the help of Hollola's observation, I found this in the recordings of my north-facing camera. You can't see much of that from behind the birch in the yard, but hopefully it will help when defining the flight path. If it's the same fireball, it went much further north than it looked from Hollola. The flight direction was not marked there, so it will be interesting to hear if it matches in those respects. Camera time around 05:34:30.

A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon

The observation made in Orivedi also appeared through a gap in the cloud in Jyväskylä. Here, the beginning is left behind the window frame, and the image area shows a ribbon-like point reflection from the outside light to the blinds. These amateur conditions…

For a change, the sensor of my own surveillance camera had also detected movement in the night sky. It just seems that the event has to be spectacular enough to be registered. In the first clip, there is a bang recorded after the barking of the dogs, which must be assumed to be caused by the explosion of the fireball. A really spectacular display of the southern sky!

A fireball at night, brighter than the venus

Vesa Vasankari, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

With the help of Vesanto's observation, I found this partially visible fireball between the trees. The beginning and the end were behind the yard trees illuminated by the outdoor lights looking very wintry. The black and white night vision mode used by the camera in low light emphasizes the effect.

Based on the observation made in Kittilä Sirka, I found this fireball recorded on my camera facing northeast.

At 02:44:30, this meteor was visible in the southeast direction, where Jupiter was also. The views of a couple of cameras, one of which I have enlarged and slowed down for the third clip.

Perseids

Vesa Vasankari, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

The very beginning of this last night's flight of the roach in the southeast probably remained behind the upper floors of the building, but still the most impressive single Perseid on my cameras this year.

Vesa Vasankari, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

Up to three different angles were found for this representative of the Perseids seen in the southeast direction. In the beginning of the third video clip, there is also a point-like flash from a so far unidentified source. A partial enlargement of the video shows the source of the flash to be quite round in shape.

In the first clip, maximum exons: up to two Perseids within 15 seconds! The first and less spectacular one can be seen to the left of the flagpole. Another camera's view of the trailing Perseid.

Rocket-related clouds

Vesa Vasankari, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

A recording related to the rocket launch from a camera pointing in the northwest direction from the center of Jyväskylä. Based on other observations, I name the Falcon 9 rocket. According to the clock on the camera (mobile phone), it was visible in the video from behind the trees after appearing at 01:53:36–01:54:24 on the way from south to north. Added another camera recording of the same. This observation starts a little earlier, but the camera is of lower quality (720p). #raketti: Falcon 9

Perseids

Vesa Vasankari, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

A fast meteor observed in the southeast direction. Just before the meteor, in the center of the image, you can see a point-like flash. These are constantly stored in different appearances and sizes, and usually you are left wondering what it is about. Satellite Blink? A meteor coming towards the observer?
