A fireball at night, brighter than a full moon - 29.11.2021 at 19.45 Oulu Observation number 102646

Visibility III / V

To the south was a bright fireball around 19:30 to 20:00 (it didn't make sense to take the exact time up). It came at a rather steep angle towards the ground, moving from east to west and extinguished somewhat above the horizon. The phenomenon lasted for a couple of seconds and burned green and reddish. When it went out, the fireball seemed to flash green. I just happened to look out the window in the right direction, so I saw the phenomenon really clearly.
