A fireball at night, brighter than a full moon - 15.1.2022 at 01.40 Rauma Observation number 103814

Visibility III / V


In Rauma a thin cloud but the reflection of the northern lights is seen from time to time. All white - even in the slight cracks in the cloud rafts.

In the middle of 40 min observation 0140 slipped from east to west in a cloud of bright light phenomenon. The speed of stellar flight, probably a fireball.

I looked inside through the east-facing window to the northeast.
