This case is not really a fireball now. the brightness of the image is estimated at -1mag, and according to the log entry of Skypatrol, the duration is only 3 frames, i.e. 0.12sec. What makes it interesting is that the smoke of the meteorite can be followed in the pictures for about 20 minutes! An interesting case, what kind of material might have been?

The first Gif (ASI294MC + Samyang 16mmF2.0) from 18min. At the beginning of the giff in the upper right corner is the M44 constellation.

Second Skypatrol image (camera watt 902h 1/2 "Supreme optics 3-8mm Tamron F1.0 ASIR zoom, zoom with about 3mm sling, and in this image field of view about 100 degrees

Onpas mielenkiintoista että noin vaatimaton (?) tulipallo on tuottanut noin pitkäkestoisen vanan.
Heikot tuulet ?
