A fireball at night, as bright as the sun - 5.12.2021 at 17.35 Kurikka, Jalasjärvi Observation number 102812

Visibility III / V


I just took the dogs out when I noticed that starwars-like fireball, which was a bit like a starburst, but slower and much brighter than a big ball of light with a tail behind. It landed on the stove and was silent. If I stood along the swaths towards Tampere, it descended in the right direction in my field of vision. A really spectacular, white, silent and muting phenomenon.
