A fireball in a daytime sky - 7.12.2021 at 14.33 Liminka Observation number 103011

Visibility III / V

Not visible

The light was not very great, but it was very bright and moved quickly. I noticed the phenomenon because of its brightness and turned to take a closer look. The phenomenon looked quite like a fireball crashing towards the ground. I didn’t have time to see what happened in the end, because it disappeared behind the trees.

Näin saman ilmiön loppulennon eli sammui noin neljän metrin korkeudessa maasta pellolle, 20 m autotien vierestä. Valo oli keltainen, mutta perässä loisti hyvin sinistä valoa.
