A fireball at night, as bright as a full moon - 16.8.2022 at 00.07 Helsinki Observation number 108566

Visibility III / V

Not visible

I stood facing the northeast. A bright light could be seen high up between the branches of the tree in front. A large comet came from the right, from the direction of the moon, it had a tail and went out in the north. Looked like a firework rocket, but coming from an overhead angle. I didn't hear a sound.

Äänetön tulipallo, kirkkaan vihreä, putosi taivaalta jättäen valovanan jälkeensä joka sammui. Ei ollut ilotulite. Mikähän tämä on voinut olla?  

tähden lennolta näytti kuitenkin.
