Rocket-related clouds - 13.8.2022 at 02.00 Äänekoski Observation number 108364

Visibility V / V

Not visible

Some time ago, above me, a very bright light passed across the sky. There was haze or fog around the ball of light. When the phenomenon went north, the fog pattern branched. Like a plow-like pattern around it. At first I thought it was a small plane, but when the ball passed above me, it didn't make any sound. Move lower than planes or any moving celestial bodies. The object was moving straight and smooth. I also didn't see planes flying over central Finland on the flight radar until after 2 am. There are no pictures because the phone was inside. I tried to watch videos about weather balloons and other flying things, but this one didn't drip, didn't flash, and didn't flicker. It just went steadily from south to north.
