A fireball at night, as bright as a cresent moon - 29.11.2021 at 19.24 Ylivieska Observation number 102613

Visibility III / V

Not visible

Hey! I don’t know what it was about but didn’t look like a rocket and didn’t hear the sound of the rocket. It looked like a fireball, but the color was a bit like a northern lights, maybe a little different shade (a hint bluer of green) each. I didn’t think it was completely green, whether it was white or yellow on the inside, but the edges were green. Disappeared from view at or below fairly high. I think it went out in the middle of the trip but I'm not sure. It was not very bright, but was clearly visible and had a long "tail".

At least there was no plane ..... I haven't seen anything like it before and I haven't had a star flight, just too big. I'm not sure about the direction of the air, but I think it flew south / southwest.
