A fireball in a daytime sky - 22.9.2021 at 06.54 Espoo Observation number 101384

Visibility Unclassified

Not visible

I drove by car to Ring Road three towards Vantaa and Martinlaakso. In the sky, on the right front slope, a very bright starburst flight with a long tail was visible, leaving a line behind it for a small moment. The morning (6:54) was already quite bright, but that stood out quite clearly and unknowingly I would have been interested in whether it was an exceptionally large song plunged into the atmosphere or the like.

Todennäköisesti ilmakehään suurella nopeudella osunut avaruuskivi.

Onkohan tämä jäänyt kenenkään kojelautakameraan?Lisähavaintoja toivotaan.
