A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 12.1.2013 at 17.28 Tampere Observation number 10187

Visibility III / V

Jari Luomanen, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

I had just tuned the halo lamp up the slope and walked to pick up the cameras when I saw this. If it had only come a little later, I might have gotten a picture of it. There was no watch on the wrist, time estimated from the time of the first exif clock in the halo photo.
