A fireball at night, brighter than the venus - 5.12.2021 at 17.30 Paimio Observation number 102826

Visibility III / V


I was outside to cool off in the sauna. I looked south as I saw the stargazing. Normally the star flight fades quickly so this time the star flight becomes very bright and stays bright for several seconds. I thought for a moment that it was flying up to the tree line bright, but still quickly began to dim and disappear before the tree line. The starburst came from the east and went west, but disappeared into the natural sky.
