A fireball at night, brigter than the venus - 28.11.2021 at 19.52 Orimattila, Artjärvi, Tähtikallio Observation number 102639

Visibility III / V

Veikko Mäkelä, Ursa (Helsinki)

Jorma Ryske reports that a fireball had been seen in Tähtikallio's camera. It would seem to have looked pretty good, even though there was a thin cloud of sky in the sky. The weather situation seems to be similar to what Harri Kiiskinen reported from Jyväskylä . The appearance of a fireball is similar.

There seems to have been a small flare-up at the end of the fireball.

Attached is the original, slightly highlighted and cropped and zoomed version of the image. The exposure of the image is 56 s and apparently the entire fireball has fit into this time fork.
