Kari Kaila, Oulun Arktos

A rather slow and rather bright fireball flew in the evening in the eastern sky. The ignition time was 17:27:02 and the flight time was about 5 seconds. The fireball went behind the trees at the end, though it can be seen interspersed with twigs. Exposure times are 2.00 s and images are snapped with a propeller every 0.2 seconds.

Hieno osuma! Lisäarvoa tuo myös kulmanopeuden määritysmahdollisuus propellikatkojan ansiosta.
