A fireball in a twilight sky - 1.12.2021 at 17.07 Helsinki Observation number 102711

Visibility III / V

Not visible

I was cycling along the Vantaanjoki River when I saw a slow, steep and almost vertical landing firing for a couple of seconds and drawing a long narrow line on the right, ie in the north-east / north directions. I checked the time right after that phenomenon and the clock showed 17:07.
