A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 25.11.2021 at 17.06 Ranua Observation number 102512

Visibility III / V


I was driving from Ranua towards Rovaniemi, but still right near the center of Ranua. I first wondered how the plane at all flies there and why it seems to crash straight down. Then the light disappeared and I found it to be a big star flight - one that has been written about now. I immediately called my mother, "I saw such a long and big star flight, too." And then I found out on this page when I started to see if there had been any observation of it made by others.
