Mikäköhän tällaisten valoilmiöiden taustalla on? Näin itse täysin samanlaisen, nopeasti suoraan alaspäin suunnanneen, sekunnin kestäneen kirkkaan valopallon taivaalla 14.8. Joroisissa. Noin kello 22 maissa.

Minulla ei ole mitään käsitystä mikä se oli. Olin puhelimessa parvekkkeellani ja tuijotin taivasta, kun se tulipallo putosi. Sanoin siitä heti kaverilleni ja jätin vain ilmoituksen. Aika outoa, jos ei tallentunut mihinkään kameraan.
