A fireball in a twilight sky - 18.1.2022 at 07.40 Porvoo Observation number 103982

Visibility Unclassified


As a stellar flight, I would describe that light phenomenon, moving rapidly from northwest to north. The light was dim blue, probably due to a thin cloud of fog. It looked very bright even though it is almost a full moon and the morning started as early as the south.

This meteor was also widely seen in Estonia and there is also 1 sighting from Denmark. The news of many sightings was also in the Estonia news 

These sightings have now registered in the database of International Meteorite Organization (IMO):

Please could you also register you observation in the IMO database. That way more information can be gathered from different countries.

Best regards, Robert Reisman from Estonia (I also saw the meteor)
