A fireball at night, as bright as the sun - 5.12.2021 at 17.30 Turku, Moisio Observation number 102815

Visibility III / V

A large green tail ball with a red glowing tail head. I was jogging with the dog on the moision school road to the southwest when I noticed a fireball. I stopped and watched the ball go for several seconds. It seemed to be going east unfortunate that the camera was not included. Really big ball.
