A fireball at night, as bright as a cresent moon - 27.9.2021 at 01.23 Pyhtää Observation number 101477

Visibility III / V


A fireball or an exceptionally bright starburst (in my opinion).

During the observation, it looked as if it had sparked hard. In the middle of the flight, it looked like it had faded, but it looked like it had ignited again. The brightness was like a gas welding flame. The splitter corresponded to the fireball of the tobacco as the hand went toward the sky.
