A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon - 16.9.2021 at 23.48 Turku Observation number 101283

Visibility V / V

I sat on the couch (we live on the top floor of an apartment building) and saw in the sky a large slightly green ball of light approaching the ground at a rapid pace. The angle was about 120 if straight up was 0 (at 4 p.m.). It grew larger and eventually disappeared behind the trees. The direction is from our window towards the Raisio factories.
