A fireball at night, brighter than the venus - 13.1.2022 at 17.30 Nivala Observation number 103757

Visibility III / V

Suddenly I saw something burning dripping to the ground behind the windshield while driving. However, it went out a few seconds before disappearing into the horizon. The piece burned green and reddish in tone at a rather steep angle of about 45 ° towards the surface. I didn’t see it disintegrate into several parts, but it faded very quickly in its linear path.
