A fireball at night, brighter than the venus - 27.9.2022 at 20.22 Orimattila Observation number 109528

Visibility III / V

While at work I was driving and looking at Jupiter, I noticed a fireball in the sky starting maybe a third of the horizon towards the firmament and was visible for about a second, two at most. In terms of brightness, it was really much brighter than Jupiter, maybe 5-10 times. You could clearly see the ball itself, some kind of halo etc. around it and the tail.

Näin saman kirkkaan tulipalon Jaalassa kun menin koiria ulkoiluttamaan. Oli saman näköinen kuin Matti kuvailee.
