A fireball at night, brighter than a full moon - 24.1.2022 at 20.35 Pyhäjoki Observation number 104169

Visibility III / V


As I drove the car, I noticed a bright light on the forest with my side eye in a place where there should be no light. As I turned my gaze, I saw a bright ball of light fall down, followed by a "star." The ball of light fell diagonally downward for a moment in a small arc, the vanity following in its direction until it faded away.
