A fireball in a twilight sky - 26.11.2021 at 17.30 Helsinki Observation number 102539

Visibility III / V

Henri Leinonen, Ursa (Helsinki)

I drove by car towards Kuusisaari west of Munkkiniemi. As I drove over the bridge, I saw a fast point of light at the top of the windshield, advancing in the same direction as the car, split into two points, both of which went out very soon after the split. The scores moved quickly and the observation lasted for about a second. It looked like the meteor had split in two and went out.
