Saman taisin nähdä, n. 17:29 tullessani Oulaisista kohti Oulua valtatie 86:lla, suoraan pohjoiseen päin näkyi idästä tien oikealta puolelta valtava palava pallo, ja liekehti punaisena noin 3-5 sekuntia, kunnes hiipui ja putosi tien vasemmalle puolelle keskitaivaalta. Näkyi tuulilasin läpi hienosti.

Havaitsin saman ollessani lumikenkäilemässä Oulun Pilpasuolla. Todella hienon näköinen ja näyttävä näky.
