A fireball at night, as bright as a crescent moon - 24.1.2022 at 20.30 Pyhäjärvi Observation number 104159

Visibility III / V

A bright fireball, perhaps at its brightest over a month - the ice of the lake looked quite white in the light. Ignition before the sky between the east and the southeast, from across the sky between the west and the northwest. After a while, there was a thunder-like rumble lasting a few seconds. Unfortunately, the clock was not included, so the time could be specified if there are other observations.
