A fireball in a twilight sky - 17.1.2022 at 17.07 Mäntyharju Observation number 103972

Visibility III / V

Markku Siljama, Ursa (Etelä-Suomi)

Observation from the car window. I was on my way home from Joutsa towards Pertunmaa when a fireball was seen directly in front.

The sky is dim, the bright moon in the east and west is the last eclipse of the sun.
