A fireball at night, as bright as a cresent moon - 16.9.2021 at 23.07 Kajaani Observation number 101279

Visibility IV / V

Lighted almost directly above his head, leaving a rather yellow-orange tail behind him. I think I saw "sparks" in the final stages of the flight, before the moon disappeared behind the cloud.

Saman näköinen ilmiö näkyi Loimaalla ihan alle 10minuuttia sitten. Näytti palavalta isolta pallolta ja katosi ikäänkuin pienen välkähdyksen kanssa
