A fireball at night, brighter than the venus - 25.9.2022 at 05.35 Hollola Observation number 109492

Visibility III / V

The ball of light fell directly into the northern sky behind the trees. I was inside so I didn't hear a sound.

The ball was bright, round, visible for a long time from the north-facing window of our home, the sky was clear when the stars were visible. Nothing similar has been seen before

Where you fell is on top of Arkiomaanjärvi, on the north shore or even further.
