A fireball at night, brighter than a full moon - 5.12.2021 at 17.30 Orivesi Observation number 102988

Visibility III / V


I drove towards Tampere and the light phenomenon flew in the direction of travel from left to right. Here are 2 pictures of the dashboard camera, weak but still. https://youtu.be/87rLwthGKI4

I think I saw a greenish hue on the outer perimeter of the torch. There was no perception of the sound because the radio was ringing and the car was up and running.

Ihan hyvähän tuo video on tulipallosta. Harvemmin näitä kuitenkaan onnistutaan kuvaamaan.
