A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 5.9.2021 at 01.03 Littoinen Observation number 101017

Visibility III / V

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.
