A fireball at night, brighter than a full moon - 23.9.2022 at 01.02 Jyväskylä Observation number 109455

Visibility III / V

Vesa Vasankari, Ursa (Länsi-Suomi)

For a change, the sensor of my own surveillance camera had also detected movement in the night sky. It just seems that the event has to be spectacular enough to be registered. In the first clip, there is a bang recorded after the barking of the dogs, which must be assumed to be caused by the explosion of the fireball. A really spectacular display of the southern sky!

Komea tapaus! Pamahtava ääni tosin ei liity tulipalloon, koska ilmiö on ollut vähintään kymmenien kilometrien etäisyydellä ja ääneltä menee noin kolme sekuntia yhteen kilometriin.

Tuli lännen puolelta melko jyrkästi ilmakehään ja paloi loppuun yli 40 km:n korkeudessa Päijänteen yläpuolella joten mahdollinen pamausääni ei liity tähän.
