A fireball at night, brighter than the venus - 5.12.2021 at 17.30 Raisio Observation number 102854

Visibility III / V


I was on the ramp after turning from the Hauninen crossroads in the direction of the center of Raisio when I saw a greenish fireball appearing from the top, finally traveling west. It was visible for about 7 seconds with brightness initially varying back and forth until it faded out of sight.

I got a video with the dashboard camera with a clip attached, although the recording on the screen seemed to drop the quality, the original was better but it shows the registration numbers so I don't really bother to make it public here. According to the OSMCompass website, the compass direction of the ramp, i.e. the direction of travel during the video, was about 251 degrees.

Sama ilmiö nähtiin Säkylässä. Ilmansuunta vaikutti juuri samalta. En ole koskaan aikaisemmin nähnyt noin kirkasta tulipalloa.

Näin ja kuvasin autokameralla saman pallon Alavudella.

Sama havainto myös kolmostiellä Tampereelta Helsinkiin juuri ennen Turun ramppia.

Oltiin juurin tulossa pojan kanssa Ruskon suunnalta Turkuun. Raision Puuilon kohdilla nähtiin tuo sama tulipallo, ikääkuin Raision keskustan yllä.

Oli kyllä hieno! Harmi, ettei saatu kuvattua.

Kiitos videosta!

Olin itse Hangossa ja näin tämän vilaukselta. Mielenkintoisesti Hangossa lentosuunta oli lähes suoraan alaspäin, kun katsoi kohti lounasta. Itsellekin ensimmäinen vaikuttava tulipallo.
