A fireball at night, as bright as the sun - 5.12.2021 at 17.30 Ulvila Observation number 102819

Visibility III / V

Not visible

As I looked out the window inside, I saw a bright fireball above the tops of the tree. The observation did not last long. No sound I could hear when I was inside. At first I thought it was a fireworks, but somehow it didn’t fit as a fireworks. If others have made a report of a similar fireball, I would be happy to report it.

Minä näin saman, mutta Turussa! Kirjasin siitä havainnon. Näin kun se sammui.
