Rocket-related clouds - 9.9.2021 at 23.20 Juva Observation number 101128

Visibility V / V

Not visible

We drove by car in the direction of Juva from Mikkeli. About 10-15km from Juva we noticed a big bright light in front, a little more on the right side, in the sky. It was first thought to be a true bright star until it started to move. The plane was also considered for the first time, but it started to land to the left in the direction of the country at a relatively fast pace. The light was really bright and a little dim and I was getting smaller when I came towards the ground. It seemed to come all the way to the ground, but the trees next to the road obscured the visibility. In the final stage, the light turned like a big faint ball of light, the sharpest brightness had disappeared. A really special sight, like never seen before! Hard to think about what it was! #raketti

I did not receive a modified light direction on the phone.
