A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon - 24.1.2022 at 20.30 Kempele Observation number 104170

Visibility III / V

Not visible

A fireball like a big starburst that was the same color as the camera flash. I pointed at my husband to watch and he too had time to watch as the fireball disappeared behind the bushes. The ball of light flew obliquely downward and appeared before the horizon to disintegrate into smaller balls of light flying in the same line.
