A fireball at night, as bright as a cresent moon - 14.11.2021 at 20.55 Vaasa Observation number 102361

Visibility III / V

Timo Alanko, Vaasan Andromeda

Osmo Action was waiting for halo rings to hear. I actually saw the fireball live, and it was much more spectacular than what was recorded in the picture. The ball was, in my opinion, more straight, as if square. Burned quickly yellowish. It hit the three-second exposure appropriately. Then there would have been an 8s break again :)
